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.

D4 Service has a new initiative

As a way to share and encourage club service projects, we are going to start profiling one club in each newsletter. We will outline how old the club is, how many members, provide club contact info and share a past project, covid project and planned future project (if there is one). We will also include a picture if available.

We hope clubs will be able to relate to other clubs and get fresh ideas for projects. We hope you find this information useful and encourage you to reach out to these clubs or our committee at [email protected] for any questions or ideas you may have.
