What is Zonta?

Zonta International is a worldwide organization of executives in business and the professions working together to advance the status of women.

 

What types of projects does the Zonta Club of Medford take on?

Our major fund-raising event is an Annual Chocolate Auction, held each February, just in time for Valentine’s Day.  Money received allows us to make donations to local groups such as the Eastern Massachusetts Literacy Council, the Lawrence Memorial Hospital, the Medford Family Life Education Center, the Medford Public Library, and the West Medford Community Center.  We also make a contribution to the Zonta International Foundation.

In 2008, we reached our goal of raising $5,000 to fund a Village Bank in Haiti.  We worked with the Foundation for International Community Assistance (FINCA), whose mission is to provide financial services to the world's lowest-income entrepreneurs so they can create jobs, build assets and improve their standard of living.



What are some of the Zonta International service projects?

Zonta International supports and administrates several different international service projects and/or programs Each biennium Zonta International sponsors international programs in association with agencies of the United Nations that work to advance the status of women. Most of the programs are in developing nations and are selected by the Zonta International Board and approved by the Zonta International membership.

Klausman Scholarship Program which provides college scholarships to women in business; and the Young Women in Public Affairs which offers recognition and scholarships on the district and international level for outstanding young women who are making a difference in their world through service.
