Distribution of Service Dollars
Each year the Board decides on options for distributing our service dollars. At our May meeting, we celebrate a great year of fundraising, service and advocacy.
Consistent with the yearly Zonta budget, there are three major categories of ‘giving’:
- Scholarship awards from our Club for the Young Women in Public Affairs (high school student) and Jane M. Klausman Women in Business (college student)
- Cash contribution to Shalom House, as our selected partner in fulfilling our local mission
- Zonta International in support of our global mission
Winners of our local Club YWPA and Klausman scholarships ($1000 each) are submitted for consideration at the District and ZI levels; our local winners can earn significant amounts of money if selected at the other levels of the organization.
Throughout the year at our membership meetings and through other communications, we’ve had an opportunity to hear from Denise Britton, Executive Director for Shalom House about the significant work they do with their residents; Denise routinely has acknowledged the value of our support to their efforts.
As a member of Zonta International, we have a proud tradition of contributing approximately 1/3 of our service dollars to one or more of the funds at ZI.
In addition to the service projects listed below, several members volunteer their time and talents to raise money for the club. Throughout the fiscal year, the three main service funding projects include:
Volunteers sell $5.00 shopping passes to raise money.
