Zonta Foundation for Women


2020 – 2022 Foundation
Ambassador Dorothy Suther

Zonta Club of Indianapolis

The Zonta International Foundation for Women has the role of raising and distributing the funds that are needed to fulfill the commitments made by delegates to the International Convention.  The delegates vote on what projects and scholarships will be undertaken in the biennium along with the funding level. There is an International Development Committee and each District has a Foundation Ambassador. They work together to present the members with information on the projects and encourage donations through club service funds and gifts by individuals.  The Foundation is a 501c3 organization and gifts are deductible for United States income taxes.

The Foundation also works with members to encourage and facilitate gifts to the Zonta endowment.  Those who have added the Zonta International Foundation for Women to their wills become members of the Mary E. Jenkins Society.
