Toronto Zontians have a long history of service to their community. We typically select each project for a 3-year term of support and donate a minimum of $7,000 per year. Our recent fundraising efforts have included: the Annual Car Rally, Christmas Bake Sale.-see below.





Zonta Club of Toronto has been active in the past few years assembling birthing kits, which are distributed via other organizations to locations around the world. Members assemble 1,000 kits per session.The kits include a plastic sheet, latex gloves, soap, gauze, ties and a razor blade. Zonta is currently setting up relationships with Medical Women’s International Association, and World Vision.

Zonta Toronto works with White Ribbon to show our commitment for ending violence against women on several initiatives including:

  •  The annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes fundraiser, which is a one-mile walk through Toronto’s financial district in heels. This year’s walk is on May 29, 2019 starting in David Peacaut Square 215 King Street West http://www.walkamiletoronto.ca.

White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women. Starting in 1991, White Ribbon asked men to wear white ribbons as a pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls. Since then the White Ribbon has spread to more than 60 countries around the world.

Established in 1948, the Z Club and Golden Z Club program is one of Zonta International’s longest-running programs. Z Clubs and Golden Z Clubs help high school, college and university students develop leadership skills, promote career exploration and encourage members to participate in community, school and international service projects.

With the help of experienced Zonta sponsors, who provide resources, information and guidance, Z Club members (high school students) and Golden Z Club members (college or university students) work to improve their society and the world. Z Club and Golden Z Club members plan, organize and participate in unique activities designed to meet the needs of members, their schools and the community, while emphasizing an international outlook and strong international relations.  There are currently 195 Z and Golden Z Clubs in 17 countries around the world.

ZONTA SAYS NO:  Zonta Toronto, along with five other clubs in Ontario, created the ‘Zonta Says No’ Award, to be awarded annually to a man and / or organization, working actively to end violence against women and girls. The first awards, given in 2014,  were a high-school principal in Hamilton and the Toronto Argonauts in recognition of the team’s “Huddle Up” program in schools.
