The Zonta Club of Ottawa supports the ZI Foundation each year.

Zonta International Foundation (ZIF), the official charitable foundation of Zonta International, advances and sustains Zonta’s global service and advocacy programs.

ZIF provides more than US$1 million, annually, for programs and projects that benefit thousands of women around the world. Through the Foundation, Zonta International helps women and girls overcome gender barriers to educational and professional advancement; provides opportunities for women to earn higher wages and achieve economic independence; ensures that women and children have access to quality, affordable health care; and strives to end violence against women while helping survivors rebuild their lives.

The Zonta International Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organization supported solely by contributions from Zonta clubs, Zontians and friends of Zonta International around the globe who share a commitment to advancing the status of women worldwide. The affairs of the Foundation are managed by its Board of Directors who also sit on the Board of Zonta International. | Zonta International Foundation Board
