The Zonta club of Birmingham was chartered in 1940 by women at the top of their professions

to expand the access of women and children to education, health care, economic opportunities, and safe living

conditions. It continues to thrive today as Zontians cultivate friendships while using their time and talents to advance the status of women.

Events include monthly Club meetings open to guests, plus special service, advocacy, fundraising, and social events. Join us!
