Who we are:
We make our communities better through leadership, partnership and service.
That is our goal. Founded in 1917, Altrusa is relevant to many civic-minded people who are interested in creating better communities. Last year, Altrusans proudly gave over a million volunteer hours around the world, including clubs in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, England, Bermuda, Ireland, India, Scotland, New Zealand and Russia.
Altrusa attracts a wide cross section of members. The reasons they become Altrusans are as varied and numerous as the communities in which they live. Most join because they were invited by a friend or associate they trust. Many look for an opportunity to meet new friends; others to advance their skills. Some join to meet the people who shape their communities. Others want to add a meaningful new experience to their lives.
