About Us

The Zonta Foothills Club of Boulder County, a member of Zonta International, has been supporting women and girls for over 30 years through local and international service projects, scholarships, advocacy and fundraising. Since 2001 our members have raised more than $400,000 to support community-based and international projects making a significant impact on the lives of women and girls.

Zonta EducateZ In 2012 Zonta Foothills launched Zonta EducateZ to support at risk women and girls through education and empowerment.  Zonta EducateZ works closely with the Boulder Valley Schools providing funds, advocacy, mentoring and other hands-on support to help close the achievement gap through literacy, college preparedness and basic life skills.  We are also the proud sponsors of The Boulder High School PantherZ Z Club and the Flatirons Golden Z Club which provide leadership and service opportunities for high and college school-aged girls.
