President’s Message:

The Zonta Club of Bonita Springs – Estero is a local organization of exceptional professional women who are part of a bigger international mission.  Through service and advocacy, the club provides the opportunity for women to become empowered at all stages of life. They are encouraged to be self sustaining by having the ability to care for themselves and their families. The fundraising efforts and hours of service have allowed the club to provide much needed scholarships and grants to local women and organizations. Our club also participates in global initiatives embraced by Zonta International, such as “Free the Girls” and Say “No to Violence Against Women.”  Please review the “Projects” tab for an overview of our recent activities.

I sincerely hope you will consider becoming a part of our organization. You will find friendship and the opportunity to be a part of an international effort of helping women locally and around the world.

Sincerely,
Nancy Dalaskey
President
