Service Awards

The Zonta Foundation of Cheektowaga-Lancaster Service Awards

Zonta Cheektowaga Lancaster Foundation provides a number of funding opportunities to non-profit organizations in the WNY counties who further Zonta’s mission. That mission includes service and advocacy in Western New York where women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential. Past groups who have received this award include: The International Institute of Buffalo, YMCA, The Family Justice Center, Nativity Miguel Middle School, Response to Love, Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build, Sisterhood Wellness Center, VA Women’s Wellness Center, Women’s Respite Program, Canine Helpers, Girl Scouts of Cheektowaga & Lancaster, as well as other not-for-profit organizations. We welcome your application and look forward to hearing about your efforts to improve the status of organization’s women and girls locally. One program may be awarded the full amount of available funds, or several programs may be awarded lesser amounts.

  In the past 19 years, our Club has awarded over $85,000 in Community Service Awards to many not-for-profit organizations in WNY.
