who made the Event successful. And to all participants our heartfelt thank you for being part of the 2nd Annual Mardi Gras Trivia Night for the Zonta Club of Greeley. Thanks to you, our Event Sponsors and Donors we are so excited to announce that we raised just over $11,600!!!!

These funds will be used locally to help victims of human trafficking (education, bus tickets, clothing, supplies for women and children, etc.). We are also excited to present scholarships to high school ladies who demonstrate leadership skills and demonstrate a commitment to public service and college level women that are pursuing an education and career in business to name a few.

Internationally, these funds will help with an education program in Madagascar for girls; address unsafe migration and human trafficking in Nepal; use education to delay early marriage in Niger; and in Liberia, funds will be used to train doctors to perform surgery that will eliminate obstetric fistula.

Thank you again for your support to empower women and girls. Hope to see you at our Third Annual Trivia Night. Stay tuned for details.

Zonta Club of Greeley

Zonta Club of Greeley is an organization of professionals who empower women locally and worldwide through service and advocacy.

Zonta Club of Greeley was pleased to award Halie Spaur for the Jane M. Klausman scholarship of $2,000 at our August 2nd meeting. Halie is from Platteville, is a first generation college student, entering her junior year at UNC. She plans to open a cosmetology business and give back to underserved clients.

Keep up the great work, Halie!

Zonta Rose Day

Every Year on March 8th, Zonta sells roses to those who wish to recognize and acknowledge achievements and contributions by word, example, and deed of all who work toward Advancing the Status of Women Worldwide.


This year the teachers at Meeker Elementary received yellow roses for International Women's day.

Addressing Human Trafficking

Zonta Club of Greeley has worked to facilitate a coalition, known as NECCAT (Northeast Colorado Coalition Against Trafficking) which includes seven local and national law enforcement entities and 33 victim-service-providing agencies. NECCAT works to recover victims, stop demand, educate, and advocate.

Free The Girls Campaign

To help human trafficking victims in developing countries get back on their feet, gently used bras are collected and sent to the victims, who can then sell the bras as a source of income through their own businesses.

Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women

Zonta says NO projects bring awareness and advocacy to combat violence against women and girls.

Domestic Violence Awareness Campaign ("Silent Witness")

Zonta's Silent Witness campaign exhibits life-size silhouettes in public places with stories of deceased victims of domestic violence.

Our Zonta Club of Greeley is pleased to help the Zonta Club of Fort Collins start their own Silent Witness program! A big thanks to Mike Pearson at Heath Middle School in Greeley and the students who chose this project (left to right)- Ash Ureste, Emily Stagnitta, Alexis Tapia, Peyton Foley, Yesenia Casas, Nora Valdovinos, Peja Hurtado. The displays will be ready in April. Several other organizations are also being supported by teams of students from Heath!

These Silent Witness displays, which tell the stories of people in our communities who have died from domestic violence, were made possible by a grant from the Littler Youth Fund (with the Community Foundation), as well as John and Delia Haefeli, all in Greeley. We appreciate the support, helping us raise awareness and display important information and resources.

Advocacy

Zonta members provide legislative awareness and advocacy on a variety of issues to improve the status of women.

Z Clubs

Z Clubs (high school) and Golden Z Clubs (College) are student clubs that are sponsored by Zonta clubs, and are intended to stimulate new and meaningful student-led service and advocacy groups. They are now forming in Greeley.

Z Clubs provide young adults with opportunities to strengthen and develop communication and leadership skills, explore career alternatives, and empower women through service and advocacy.
