Zonta Member,
As a member and/or donor to the Zonta International Foundation, we want to share some exciting news with you. Our foundation will now be known as the Zonta Foundation for Women
We are excited about this new name because:
  • Zonta is, and always has been, about empowering women. This new name puts our work on behalf of women and girls front and center.
  • Operating under a name that includes the word “women” will help elevate visibility and provide immediate recognition of what the Foundation stands for.
Read the full press release announcing the name change and the US$5 million Zonta has committed in program and project support for the 2020-2022 grant cycle to address the root causes of gender discrimination and bring about positive and sustainable changes. These contributions will build upon the more than US$45.9 million Zonta has already contributed to empower women and girls and expand their access to education, health care, economic opportunities and safe living conditions.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to sharing the results of our work with you as we continue to make great strides for gender equality through our projects and programs.
