Help Us Make the Holidays Brighter for Teens in Foster Care

During the month of November, we are collecting money and will be taking donations on behalf of Allies For Teens in Foster Care.
 
The donations will go toward gifts and gift cards for teens in group homes in the Milwaukee community.  We hope to make their holidays a little brighter with our support, since these under-served teens do not have the traditional support of parents or foster parents.
 
If you would like to contribute please use the orange Donate Now button at the top of www.zontamilwaukee.org. Members and prospective members can bring Target gift cards and wish list items to the meeting on November 15th. A full list of items will be included in the newsletter.

2020 Fundraiser – Online Auction Live NOW through September 27th!!

Link to the Auction Site: https://go.rallyup.com/2020zontafundraiser

Bidding started today and will run through September 27th

Since we could not safely hold our 2020 Zonta Fashion Show fundraiser, we were not able to raise approximately $25,000 for nonprofit services serving women and girls. Our alternative is an online auction to be held September 19th through September 27th along with seeking monetary donations. 

The money raised will be distributed in 2021 to local non-profit agencies that empower women and girls in the Milwaukee metro area. This will be the only effort to raise funds for next year’s grants. These organizations provide education, basic needs such as food, housing and transportation, domestic violence support, and/or job preparation. Over the years we have supported over 75 local nonprofit agencies as well as Zonta International Service Projects and Scholarships.

Here’s our opportunity to support next year’s grants to local nonprofits serving women and girls. Please also promote this event to your friends, relatives and co-workers. The items are interesting and participation is fun & easy. Monetary donations to Zonta Foundation, Inc. can be made at bottom of auction page, through a donation page https://go.rallyup.com/zontadonation (available now), the Donate Now button the the header of this website, our Facebook page or by writing a check payable to Zonta Foundation, Inc. and mailed to Elizabeth Stull Foundation Treasurer at 3049 S. 39th Street Milwaukee, WI 53215.

Milwaukee Zonta members and friends have proven to be very generous in the past. Here is one more opportunity ..if you are able, give someone a reason to smile.  Thank you!

Please Help Raise Funds for our Zonta Club’s Covid-19 Crisis Response

– A combined Service and Advocacy initiative –

The COVID-19 crisis is adversely affecting women and families, particularly regarding basic needs, not only health, but also food, shelter and safety with increases in domestic violence, unemployment, and evictions. We will be supporting agencies whose resources are stretched due to this crisis and whose mission aligns with ours.

We are asking members who are able to donate to our club’s Zonta Foundation to help these agencies in need, making a bigger impact than we could as individuals.

  • If members who are able can donate the cost of our monthly meeting dinner, we should be able to raise $750 or more for each of the four agencies we have selected for this summer’s effort.
  • Since we did not meet as a Club in person and dine together in March, April, May and June, we each did not incur a $30 per month meeting cost. Please consider donating this amount or more.
  • Feel free to send in one check, or you may elect to donate monthly over the summer. We are also offering on-line donations via Facebook.

We have selected four agencies to support with this summer’s effort:

  • Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative (MHVI)/ WOVIN –Women Veterans Initiative:
    • Women veterans and their families
    • Providing housing and food
    • Sojourner Family Peace Center:
    • Women and their families, as domestic violence is spiking in COVID-19 crisis
    • Providing safety, food, housing
  • Sixteenth St Health Center:
    • Patient and family-centered medical care and social services, serving largely below poverty level Spanish-speaking population in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties
    • Open and accepting new patients, need protective equipment
  • The Cathedral Center:
    • Primary focus is on women and children, working to end homelessness
    • Concerned about running out of supplies, basic needs and PPE

Donations can be sent to the Zonta Foundation Treasurer:
Elizabeth Stull
3049 S. 39th Street
Milwaukee, WI 53215

Please indicate “COVID” on your check and note if this is a one-time donation for the full summer effort, or one of multiple checks if you prefer to donate monthly. Or you may donate on-line via our Facebook page. Thank you!
