Meet our Members

The Zonta Club of St Cloud places a local emphasis on education of women and improving the lives of women in our community.  To that end, we provide local scholarships as well as financial support to two local agencies that are all about supporting women:  Journey Home and Anna Marie's.  We also provide support for various literacy endeavors that come up - that can range from providing funding to being a pen pal to an elementary school student.
