Zonta International is a leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.

The Zonta Club of Cheektowaga-Lancaster is one of 35 Clubs that make up District 4.  It is one of over 1200 Clubs that make up Zonta International.   Zonta International  was chartered here in Buffalo in 1919.

With more than 31,000 individual members – Zontians – are thriving in 65 countries.  Our members come from a variety of careers, each enriching us with their special viewpoints, becoming our friends.

Our club recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary.  Mildred Whittaker, one of the original charter members, is still a member.  We have several members with more than 10 years in Zonta.   We have new members joining regularly so there is a nice mix of perspective and ideas.

One of the first goals of the newly chartered club was to establish a “Z” Club for teenage girls which formed at Lancaster High School in 1972 and is still supported by the club today.  We are active in improving the status of women through our advocacy program, our grants and scholarships, and our service projects.   https://zontacheektowaga-lancaster.org/join-us/

We find great satisfaction in working together toward gender equity, equal rights, and living a life free of violence for all women and girls. We believe in Zonta International’s Vision for the Future . Our Club works tirelessly to make this Vision come true.   Join us!
