About Our Club

 

The Zonta Club of Geelong Inc. was chartered on the 29th March, 1979. It is club No. 879 in Area 4 of District 23 (which includes Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania).

The Club's membership is made up of a broad cross-section of women from in and around Geelong, in a diverse range of professions The major business of the club is managed by the elected executives who make up the Board of Directors.

We support a range of service projects and awards at the International, District and Club levels to help women in Australia and overseas, including:

  • Assembling and distributing birthing kits that provide for a clean and safe birthing environment for women without 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 a number of awards to women for education and community service providing financial assistance to help 'kick start' careers and acknowledge the quiet achievers in the community.

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.
