Zonta Service Grants

Zonta accepts applications for major grants every other year.

Local non-profit organizations may seek funds for projects in keeping with Zonta’s mission of advancing the status of women through service and advocacy.

Award sizes vary with maximum amounts generally in the $4,000 – $6,000 range.

Grant applications are available in March with the next major grant cycle in 2022.

Every year, mini grants in amounts not to exceed $2,500 are awarded in the spring. Grant applications for 2021 will be accepted through April 1, 2021.
