Altrusa International District Seven

Leading to a better community

We believe that everyone is able to make a positive difference to the world around them. We can each volunteer our time, or donate our money, towards worthy causes. Our individual efforts are small, but they matter.

We can achieve even more when we bring people together. For over 100 years Altrusa clubs have collected members from varying occupations and lifestyles, all sharing an interest in community service.

We enjoy the friendship, fun and satisfaction that comes from working together for the benefit of others. Each club develops a program that is tailored to local needs, undertaking a variety of hands-on service and fundraising projects each year. One of our shared goals as an organization is to improve literacy, which we believe is the key to opportunity.

Through Altrusa activities we develop our leadership skills in a supportive environment. We welcome new ideas and aim to provide enough flexibility so that our members can give their time in a way that works for them.

Why choose Altrusa?

  • I love to read, so literacy is important to me. And I like that we support several community projects, so there is something for everyone to focus their energies on.

  • I like meeting the variety of members who are not in my field of work. I can make a difference in the types of service projects that we support.

    Madeleine Rose, Brookings, SD

  • I have been a member of business women’s groups, which have a function, but none provided the opportunity to provide service. The obvious choice was Altrusa.
