Zonta International Foundation raises nearly US$30,000 through Macy’s Charity Challenge

Thanks to our generous members and supporters, the Zonta International Foundation raised US$29,365 through the Macy's Shop for a Cause Charity Challenge. Though we did not win one of the five grand prizes, we finished in eighth out of more than 1,700 charities.

On behalf of the Foundation, thank you to everyone who donated through the Charity Challenge. All donations went in the Zonta International Strategies to End Violence Against Women (ZISVAW) Fund, to help end violence against women and girls, one of the most pervasive and least recognized human rights violations that affects women and girls of every race, class, culture, ethnicity, age and country. 

The Charity Challenge, a friendly fundraising campaign where charities competed to raise the most money, brought in:

  • 382 unique donors
  • 13 club donors
  • 115 first-time donors
  • 19 non-Zontian donors

I extend my sincerest gratitude to all who donated to make a difference for women and girls.
