Celebrate Zonta Rose Day with a Meaningful Gift

As we approach Zonta Rose Day, we invite you to join us in honoring the incredible people who have made a significant impact on your life. Show your appreciation by making a gift in their name.

Zonta Rose Day, celebrated alongside International Women’s Day on 8 March, is a time to recognize the achievements, strength and resilience of women worldwide. It is an opportunity to celebrate those who inspire us, uplift us and contribute to positive change in our lives and communities.

Your meaningful gift will not only commemorate the remarkable individuals who have touched your heart but will also support projects and programs that empower and uplift women and girls globally.
