Help Us Do It

Our mission is supported by many generous donors, including corporate sponsors, community merchants and individual donors. Thank you to our 2022 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 presented by KI: Contract Furnishings. Additional matching fund sponsorships are available. Learn more by clicking on the link below or emailing
