Help Us Do It

Our mission is supported by many generous donors, including corporate sponsors, community merchants and individual donors. Thank you to our 2019 Barn Bash funding partners. We welcome contributions at any time, and host several events each year. For more information on how to partner with ZEF please see our sponsorship brochure.

Eagle Honors

ZEF Eagle Honor Awards are a special recognition to any ZCS teacher or staff member as a way to thank them for the impact they have made on your student, family, or community. Each certificate is sent with a personalized message for a donation to ZEF of $10 or more per honoree.

Eagle Honor Awards are sponsored by KI: Contract Furnishings with additional matching funds provided by Duke Energy Foundation and Trane. We are grateful to these community partners for making it possible for your Eagle Honor Awards donations to be matched up to 2-to-1!

If you have any questions about Eagle Honors or trouble ordering, please contact Julie Bradley at 317.979.1737 or Lyle Browne at 317.403.6681. ‬
