Zonta International is divided into districts and clubs. The Zonta Club of Salt Lake Area was created in 1959 and is located in Area 2, District 9 of Zonta International. Our members live along the Wasatch front and through our fundraising and service efforts we are able to help provide support for local organizations, as well as scholarships for the local Salt Lake Community College.

The Period Project 2022-2023
This year Zonta Club of Salt Lake Area is excited to begin supporting the Period Project. This initiative is working to end period poverty by ensuring period products are provided free of cost and readily available. To help with this, our club members were excited to have the opportunity to put together period "kits" with different period items to donate to a few of the local high schools! To find out more about this initiative, please visit: https://www.thepolicyproject.org/theperiodproject/
In September our club was introduced to Martha Garcia from Passionate Wings. Martha shared her passion for helping women who are fleeing from abusive situations. Many women leaving these types of situations leave with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. Martha wants to ensure these women have what they need to make a fresh start and move on with their lives. A few of our club members were very excited to be able to help organize the items at the Passionate Wings location and look forward to spending more time there to help support these women in need. To learn more about Martha and her amazing organization, please visit: https://www.passionatewings.org/
