Click Here to find out how you can make a difference in the lives of women around the world!

 

The Zonta Club of Findlay, Ohio is part of a global service organization of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of women through service and advocacy. Locally, we plan and participate in many service and fellowship opportunities throughout the year.
Local fundraising activities fund scholarships awarded to Hancock County Ohio residents, including Gen-eral Scholarships, Young Women in Public Affairs Award, Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Award, Zonta Non-Traditional Student Scholarship, Liberty Benton Z-club Scholarship, and Amelia Earhart Fellow-ship. A total of $ 8,000 was awarded in 2017!!
$ 8,100 was raised via the Zonta Spring Style Show in April 2017! $ 2,700 each was awarded to Hope House, Open Arms, and The Daughter Project.
The Daughter Project’s thank you letter stated, “As you can imagine, recovering from the physical and sexual abuse of sex trafficking is a very long process. That is why your prayers and financial support are so important to the Daughter Project and the young ladies who find safety, hope and healing in our home.”
We look forward to talking with you on how you can join us in making a difference!
