Welcome to our website!
Altrusa is an international non-profit organization making our local communities better through leadership, partnership and service. Our club is composed of leaders who are active in working toward a better community with a focus on improving literacy in the Fox Valley. We raise funds in various ways to support community needs. The Fall Fashion Show and Spring Auction are supplemented by smaller fundraisers throughout the year. Each year our members distribute books and serve as table facilitators at the local community college’s Conversation Café for non-native speakers. We annually visit a local nursing home and help entertain the residents. Our members cooperate with a local literacy organization by donations and service at its annual Trivia Bee.
We are a team that upholds an environment that supports participation, respect, creativity and high ethical standards.
We enjoy meeting each month and find that good food and laughter make work easy. Club members join committees and benefit from each other’s strengths and skills.
Every club wants to remain vital by increasing membership. In addition, we strive to retain every member by scheduling interesting and informative speakers for our meetings. We are on the lookout for ways to involve as many members as possible in worthwhile activities and utilize their vast experience and talents. And most important, we have fun together!
If you live in the Fox Valley area, we would love to have you join us! Contact our Membership Chair, Sandee Jensen, for more information.
