On behalf of the Endowment Committee, thank you for your support of the Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign. Your commitment makes a difference for the future of women, girls and our beloved Zonta International. We are forever grateful for your generosity!
Globally, we celebrated our Centennial Anniversary on 8 November with enthusiasm and joy. We honored Zonta’s many achievements and pledged to continue these successes. Each member feels pride in all that we have accomplished. Milestone after milestone, we have shown our commitment to creating a world where women and girls are empowered with expanded access to education, health care, economic opportunities and safe living conditions.
But today, our jobs are not yet complete. Thus, our important goal to grow the endowment remains, to ensure that we continue to make tremendous impact. These endowed dollars will continue to work long into the future, enabling empowered women and girls to build successes and pave roads that would have otherwise been left unpaved like so many of our predecessors had the opportunity to do.
As we continue to celebrate our anniversary this biennium, I would like to recognize the many successes we have already achieved. As a result of donor generosity, through November, we have raised US$3,319,792! We have a record number of members supporting this campaign, with 148 pledges and 2,195 donors. A heartfelt thank you, as your giving makes a lasting impact.
With the conclusion of the Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign nearing, we vow to finish strong. We cannot do this without your help. Please join with us in sharing the Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign message. By demonstrating your commitment, other members may choose to follow your lead and make a lasting gift.
Our 100th anniversary is the perfect time for all members to consider making an impactful gift. Please share that there is still plenty of time for members to support the campaign, and they can do so here. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Foundation staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we look back on the past 100 years, so many strong, impressive women have made their mark on the world through Zonta. We are so proud to say that we have been part of this organization and we want to ensure that many more women will carry on these traditions for us.
Again, thank you for your support of this important cause. We look forward to celebrating the campaign successes with you in 2020 in Chicago. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Your investment truly makes a difference to the future of Zonta International!
Believe, Invest, Empower,
