Projects, Resources & Inspiration

To ensure membership within Zonta International our District and D4 clubs must have a standing Service committee to comply with the mission of empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.

Zonta Service

ZI also encourages clubs to develop new projects to refresh members’ involvement and to offer a service unique to their own community.

Encouraging new collaboration with two like-minded organizations.

District 4 welcomes ideas for district projects. Projects are voted on by delegates at the District Conference and implemented the following biennium.

Zonta Club of Guelph

D4 Service Club of the Month

Chartered: 1979

Area 1

Number of Members – 10

Contact: Tanya Tagwerker

On a cold February 26th evening, a small team of Zonta Club of Guelph members, along with thousands of Canadian across the country, participated in Coldest Night of The Year, by walking to fundraise to support and serve people and families experiencing homelessness, hurt and hunger in their community. They surpassed their goal with a total of $1450.00 going to the Hope House in Guelph.

Hope House operates and advocates on the belief that poverty, food insecurity, inequality, health and community are all interconnected. They offer services and programs that challenge the stigmas surrounding poverty and allow our community members to maintain their dignity and choice, while simultaneously providing them with tactile skills developed in a community environment, creating long-term skills that facilitate self-sufficiency.

Hats off to the Zonta Club of Guelph for their support of this impactful project in their community!

As I say, make your service projects fun and they will be successful.

Brenda Graham, D4 Service Chairperson
