Give a gift that lasts more than a lifetime by becoming a member of the Mary E. Jenkins 1919 Society.
In 1903, before women of the United States had the right to vote, before every household had a radio or television, when daily newspapers provided the primary source of information about local, national and world events, Mary E. Jenkins became owner and president of the Syracuse Herald, a powerful position in an almost exclusively male industry. Sixteen years later, Mary became a founding member of the Zonta Club of Syracuse, one of the nine original Zonta clubs, also serving as the first President of the Confederation of Zonta Clubs from 1919 to 1921.
Mary Jenkins was a pioneer in every way, and to honor her achievements, the Mary E. Jenkins 1919 Society was established for Zontians wishing to leave a legacy gift to ensure Zonta’s future.
Through planned giving, donors are able to make a significant philanthropic commitment, and many donors find this option to be more comfortable than doing so during their lifetime. There are many types of planned and life-income gifts that can offer benefits to donors and their families, in addition to funding Zonta International's work.
