Zonta Club of Greeley is an organization of professionals who empower women locally and worldwide through service and advocacy.
Our 2018 Zonta Club of Greeley Holiday Party! We enjoyed our annual potluck and gift exchange while collecting lots of needed items for A Woman’s Place.
Zonta Club of Greeley was pleased to award Halie Spaur for the 2018 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!
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.
The teachers at Meeker Elementary School received yellow roses for International Women's Day 2018.
Thank you to all who supported the Zonta Club of Greeley in their fundraising efforts.
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.
Looking forward to seeing you at our Third Annual Trivia Night in October 2019. Stay tuned for details.
Zonta says NO projects bring awareness and advocacy to combat violence against women and girls.
Mayor John Gates is joined by members of the Zonta Club of Greeley after signing their Proclamation for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, which begins on Nov 25, International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women, and ends December 10, International Human Rights Day. Two representatives of A Woman's Place also attended the City Council meeting November 20, 2018, in support of the Proclamation.
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 35 victim-service-providing agencies. NECCAT works to recover victims, stop demand, educate, and advocate.
The Zonta Club of Greeley is honored for this recognition, thank you Greeley Police Department!
Zonta's Silent Witness campaign exhibits life-size silhouettes in public places with stories of deceased victims of domestic violence.
If you have suggestions where to display these silhouettes please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks to Heath Middle School students through Mike Pearson’s AVID/Industrial Arts Program in Greeley for once again creating Silent Witness displays! We now have a person with a wheelchair, to highlight that domestic violence also affects people with disabilities. Students also made helpful projects for Lutheran Family Services Refugee & Asylee Programs, Weld Food Bank, Heath Intensive Autism Program and Free Our Girls!
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.
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 members provide legislative awareness and advocacy on a variety of issues to improve the status of women.
