AN OPTIMIST CLUB
It is a non-profit voluntary organization made up of civic minded men and women banded together for progressive thought and action in community service. Membership is by getting close to us or by invitation and is composed of citizens drawn from business, industry, agriculture, and the professions. Members are motivated by the desire to contribute to the community from which they and their families draw daily benefits. There is no greater opportunity for participation in community affairs and service than in an Optimist Club. We take pride in supporting our kids, youth and children in our communities, and thus the slogan "Friend of Youth".

FREQUENT ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Friend of Optimists?
The Friend of Optimists Membership category was created to accommodate people who believe in what Optimist International stands for and what Optimist Clubs do in their communities. However, not everyone has the time to fully commit as a regular Member of an Optimist Club or perhaps they live in an area that does not have an Optimist Club. Joining as a Friend of Optimists allows people to Bring Out the Best in Kids apart from Club affiliation.
Can a Friend of Optimists participate in Club or District activities?
Absolutely Yes! A Friend of Optimists may choose to participate in service projects and fundraisers with a local Club or District or they may choose to support the Optimist cause with their Membership fee only.
Do Friends of Optimists count toward Membership totals for Awards purposes?
Yes, Friends of Optimists will be counted for Awards purposes.
Can I sponsor a Friend of Optimists?
Yes, you can sponsor a Friend of Optimists and receive sponsorship credit for recruiting your Friend.
Can a Friend of Optimists eventually join an existing Club?
Yes! The Friend of Optimists membership is a great way to get people hooked on Optimism. If someone cannot fully commit to an Optimist Club, Just ask them to join as a Friend of Optimists. It is a great way to get a taste of the organization and after a year of showing support and participating in a few projects, joining an Optimist Club may be their next step.
Are Friends of Optimists covered under Optimist International insurance?
Yes!, but only when participating in an Optimist Club or District activity
Can a Friend of Optimists eventually help build a Club?

to support the organization’s mission. It could even inspire them to help us build a new Optimist Club in their community.
Can a Friend of Optimists Membership be presented as a gift?
Sure, an Optimist Club can present a loyal supporter with a Friend of Optimists membership as a way of saying thank you for the support they have received. This would be for someone outside of their Club, perhaps someone who often serves as a sponsor or gives them items at a reduced cost for the Club’s projects.
There are countless opportunities that surround the Friend of Optimists membership, and it is just one more way to make sure Optimist International is “Bringing Out the Best in Kids.”
