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!

2020 Fundraiser is moving to April 2021!!

A decision has been made by the Club to cancel the 2020 Zonta Club of Milwaukee Fashion Show Fundraiser originally scheduled for April and previously postponed to September 26. With the continuing public health concern about the coronavirus (COVID-19), and for the safety of our supporters and our members, we feel that this is the right thing to do. We are moving forward with our planning of our 2021 event on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at the Milwaukee Marriott West and hope you will support us next year.

We rely on your generosity. We plan to hold an online silent auction in September with items already donated in order to raise funds that can be used for grants to local non-profit agencies that empower women and girls. We ask for your support with our fundraiser effort through the silent auction or donations. Keep an eye out for additional information coming closer to September.

If you have a paid reservation for the 2020 event, you will be contacted by Elizabeth Stull to either receive a refund or turn your money into a donation.

Homelessness, abuse, hunger, and unemployment are all on the rise as the “stay at home” regulations are in force, impacting impoverished women and children. The Zonta Club of Milwaukee’s fashion show fundraiser is the primary fundraiser to support agency grants to strengthen the safety net for those in need. Thank you for your ongoing support of this initiative benefiting the women of the Milwaukee area.

Thank you for your continued support!

The Zonta Club of Milwaukee Fundraiser Fashion Show is postponed until Sept. 26, 2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Please plan to join us then!!

Fundraiser Event: Please note that this date has been postponed and new invitations will be created
