The Zonta Club of Geelong Inc. was chartered on the 29th March, 1979. It is club No. 879 in Area 4 of District 23 (District 23 includes Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania).
The Club membership of Zonta Geelong is made up of a broad cross section of women from around Geelong. The members come from a diverse range of professions. The major business of the club is managed by the elected executives, who make up the Board of Directors.
Zonta Geelong supports a range of service projects and awards at the international, district and club levels to help women in Australia and overseas.
Some of those service projects and awards include:
Assembling and distributing birthing kits that provide a clean and safe birthing environment for women who don't have access to professional medical care in developing countries.
Making and distributing breast care cushions for women (and men) recovering from breast surgery in Australia.
Supporting awards to women for education and community service, providing financial assistance to help "kick start" careers and acknowledge the quiet achievers in the community.
The Zonta Geelong club members raise funds for these projects through a range of annual and one-off projects which include theatre nights, fashion parades, auctions, trivia nights, shopping trips and raffles.
