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 for the 2020-2022 biennium
- 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.
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 the Zonta International Foundation.
In addition to the projects listed below, several members volunteer their time and talents to raise money for the club. Throughout the fiscal year, the main service funding projects include:
Volunteers shop at Boscov’s store. A percentage of what they spend goes to a designated non-profit organization.
An “unevent” to accept donations for not attending. The donations support the Zonta Club programs to benefit women and children both locally and globally.
