The Zonta Club of Brisbane City Heart supports a range of local and international projects that empower women and girls to reach their full potential.

When considering new projects to support the following parameters are considered by the Board of the Zonta Club of Brisbane City Heart.
We are socially inclusive
We are committed to working with like-minded, community/not-for-profit organisations who provide services to support women and girls facing disadvantage and challenges which disempower them.

We will work within both the Brisbane area and Queensland wide depending on the need.

We will actively seek to grow our membership base with people from a diverse range of backgrounds (both men and women) who are committed to advocacy and services to support women in our community.
We focus on outcomes
All proposals must be able to demonstrate discrete, measurable outcomes will be delivered as a result of financial support provided.

We will look for opportunities for members to be able to provide hands on support to complement funding support to maximise outcomes for women and girls in our community.
We support innovation
Requests for financial support will be prioritised for projects / services that don’t meet the criteria of other funding / grant sources, with a focus on addressing the root causes of inequality and disadvantage, eg prevention of violence against women through education.

We will look for opportunities to partner with reputable, socially-minded organisations to maximise fundraising opportunities and outcomes for women in our community.
We are accountable
Funding recipients must be able to demonstrate adequate governance to indicate sound financial management and the ability to report on funding provided. We will set clear expectations with funding recipients in regard to our expected outcomes and reporting requirements.

Where possible and appropriate, we make transparent decisions within a participatory framework with our members. We take the time to be honest with our members, including difficult conversations when appropriate and follow through on our commitments.
