Centennial Anniversary Grants

In honor of 100 years of Zonta service and Zonta International’s centennial anniversary in 2019, Zonta International has launched its Centennial Anniversary Grants program. These one-time grants of up to US$5,000 each will recognize charitable organizations working to improve the lives of women and girls in their local communities. Zonta International will award up to US$300,000 in grants to deserving organizations from any of  the 63 countries in which Zonta currently has active Zonta clubs.


Charitable organizations must partner with a local Zonta club to apply. The partnering organization must:

  • Provide evidence that it complies with diversity standards.
  • Provide evidence that it complies with health and safety standards.
  • Propose a project that meets at least one of the objects of Zonta International - legal, political, economic, health, education, or violence against women.
  • Propose a project that will be delivered in the Zonta club’s local community.
  • Have a high reputation for its work in the Zonta club’s region/country.
