The individual Zonta Club is the basic organizational unit of Zonta International. Clubs exist to promote the objectives of Zonta International, and to initiate, adopt, and implement policies and procedures to attain these ends in their own communities, and throughout the world. Each club establishes its own level of participation in community service projects and local programs. By participating in Zonta district conferences and international conventions, club delegates form and regulate policies and adopt international service projects.

Why Contribute to Zonta International Foundation?

There has been some confusion that Zonta International dues are used to fund the Zonta projects. They are not. Zonta International Foundation is the fundraising body of Zonta International and the only funds are those received from clubs, individuals, bequests set up in your will, authorized automatic monthly payments, and matching funds.
