Today, more than 5,600 men, women, and youth in North America, South America, the Caribbean, South Pacific, Southeast Asia, and Europe are changing lives in 269 communities in 12 countries.
Quota’s motto, “We Share,” empowers members to develop friendships, encourage others, and promote international understanding. Quota is known especially for service empowering women and children and to people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, and speech-impaired.
Quota members form life-long friendships, working to serve others through their local clubs giving back through outreach and fellowship opportunities. Members connect at regional and international meetings and the biennial convention as well as through Quota’s online communications; Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin.
Hundreds of thousands of hours and over $1 million every year are donated by members to local and international service. Quota’s award-winning We Share Foundation supports Quota’s 21 world service club projects and provides tools and information for members to make the most of their service and humanitarian aid.
