A few words about

What We Do

The Zonta Club of Gawler chartered in 1993, and since then, we have supported the local, national and international communities through our service projects and our advocacy. We also work alongside other Service Clubs and organisations that share our core values.

We raise funds through events, grants and donations. 100% of fundraising and donations are used for our service and advocacy programs. Grants are used in accordance with the grant guidelines.

Members pay annual fees and these are used to cover the administrative costs involved in operating the Club locally and internationally.

One third of all Club fundraising goes to the Zonta International Service Program projects. You can find out more about these here.
