Welcome to the Zonta Club of Cincinnati! - the most unique women’s service organizations in the world!

We are a group of professionals making a difference in the lives of women in Cincinnati and worldwide.


The Zonta Club of Cincinnati was founded in 1935 and as a member of Zonta International (founded

in 1919), we are dedicated to improving the lives of women locally and globally through service,

advocacy, education, and fundraising efforts.

Zonta International envisions a world in which women's rights are recognized as human rights and every

woman is able to achieve her full potential. International projects focus on women's health, education, gender based violence, child marriage and human trafficking among others. Locally, The Zonta Club of Cincinnati’s fundraising and service efforts support organizations which share our mission.
