Community Funding

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.

Little Red Schoolhouse

Zonta Coos Bay Area Little Red Schoolhouse

Little Red Schoolhouse
Our Little Red School House project started in 1998 in response to the needs expressed by area schools to provide basic school supplies to low income students.

Our program has grown significantly over the years as need has increased:

  • Given over $200,000 in supplies since 1998
  • Provided supplies to all 6 districts in Coos County
  • Serving an estimated 4,400 children in grades K-8

Our Coos County schools rely on Zonta’s donations to meet a very large portion of the required school supplies needed by students who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program.

The schools are so appreciative of the supplies which have come through Zonta’s Little Red School House project.It would not be possible without the generosity of donors and the community. 

This project is made possible through funding from the following organizations:

  • Bay Area Hospital Community Foundation
  • Coquille Tribal Community Fund
  • Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation
  • Oregon Community Foundation, Fred W Fields Fund
  • Menasha Legacy Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation
  • Plum Creek Foundation
  • Rotary Coos Foundation
  • Three Rivers Foundation
  • Trust Management Services
  • Zonta Club of the Coos Bay Area
  • Many individuals supporters throughout Coos County.
