President's Message
Jennifer Groth

Thank you for visiting the Zonta Club of the Coos Bay Area’s website; we appreciate your interest in our organization and our mission.  Our Club has been part of Oregon’s south coast communities for 64 years, and our membership of more than 100 is dedicated to improving the status of women in our region and beyond.  Our members our most proud of “walking the walk”; rolling up our sleeves to focus on activities that truly reach those who need our help.

 

As part of our service mission, we raise tens of thousands of dollars through fundraising events, and we provide programs that target women transitioning to the workforce, young women starting on their careers, and mothers trying to provide for their children.  We also bond together with other Zonta Clubs to address the pressing problems women face in all corners of the world.

 

We are grateful to our community for their support of our efforts, and we enjoy both the fellowship of our members’ shared values and the fulfillment of making a difference in the lives of women who need our help.
