Altrusa International District Four

Leading to a better community

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

We can achieve even more when we bring people together. For over 100 years, caring people from around the world and all walks of life have become Altrusans, 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.
