Community Funding

In March of 2022 the club recognized Tara Johnson, Executive Director of The Devereux Center in Coos Bay. Tara was praised for her unwavering dedication to those experiences homelessness. The Coos Bay Area Zonta Service Foundation distributed a check for $3000 to The Devereux Center which will help support the hard work that Tara and her colleagues perform every day to uplift the most vulnerable in our community. 

The Zonta Club awards multiple community grants each year through the Foundation. Supporting nonprofit organizations and projects that work for and encourage the purpose of our mission – to improve the legal, economic, educational, health and professional status of women and girls. 

Covid-19 has effected our ability to fundraise which has resulted in fewer community grants. If you would like to support our service foundation, please click here to donate.
