Amelia Earhart (AE) Month
Every January, Zonta International celebrates the life of Zontian and famed aviator Amelia Earhart. Zonta encourages its clubs to commemorate Amelia Earhart Month by planning AE-related programs and fundraisers for the Zonta International Foundation Amelia Earhart Fellowship Fund.
Zonta International selected the 11th of January as Amelia Earhart Day in recognition of the day Amelia began her trip from Honolulu, Hawaii, to Oakland, California, United Sates, which made her the first person to fly solo across any part of the Pacific Ocean.
Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign
Zonta International’s 100th anniversary is quickly approaching. As part of our celebration, Zonta is undertaking our Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign. It is the opportunity for members and contributors committed to Zonta’s service and advocacy work to establish our legacy for the future.
The Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign is committed to growing Zonta’s endowment fund by US$10 million and developing a robust planned giving program. Earnings from the endowment fund may be used to fund – or expand – any part of Zonta International’s work, including the potential to sustain a long-term Zonta flagship program.
