Our members are among Zonta International's more than 30,000 members in over 1200 clubs worldwide located in 64 countries. Zonta (www.zonta.org) was founded in Buffalo, New York, USA, in 1919, by a woman entrepreneur One of our earliest members was Amelia Earhart!
ZCH has a 501(c)3 charitable fund: the ZCHECF. The fund's primary purpose is to provide scholarships and support service projects that advance the status of women in the greater Houston area as well as globally through contributions to the Zonta International Foundation. ZCHECF awards $1250 annually to an outstanding local young woman involved in public affairs attending secondary school (Young Woman in Public Affairs Award) and $1250 to an outstanding young woman in business school attending university (Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship). In addition, the members of our club perform hands-on service at several local agencies supporting women.
