Burbank area women need your help. Even before the pandemic, many were facing adversity – often alone, fending for themselves in the wake of domestic violence, divorce or the death of a financial provider. Now, Covid has added extra burdens – job loss, housing insecurity and the demands of home-schooling children, to name a few.
For the past decade Zonta has been a vital financial resource for determined adult women overcoming a life-changing setback through education. We’ve provided grants for tuition, equipment, child care and even post-education licensing – whatever it takes for a driven woman to find her Wings and soar to a successful new life for herself and her family.
Zonta offers Wings grants twice each year – the deadline for our next series is September 30. We'll make more grants in the spring of 2021. We’d like to help as many women as we can. We won’t ask you to Zoom, or bid on something you might not need. But we are asking you to help us help women rise by clicking on the donate button and making a tax-deductible gift to our Help Women Rise This Fall! campaign. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by October 31, which will provide grants to at least 10 women (each grant up to $2,000). If we exceed our goal, even more women will be helped. There are no expenses associated with this campaign other than credit card processing fees. 97.5% of your gift will go to grants.
Please share our campaign with your friends! With your help we'll meet our goal and give even more women Wings. Thank you!
