Dining for Women is an educational giving circle whose members collectively support international grassroots programs that empower women and girls living in extreme poverty.
DFW selects a featured grantee each month and promotes it throughout the month at chapter meetings and through mailings, social media, and online communications. Featured grantees are assigned to be featured in a specific month based on issue area and geography. To that end, the circle is inviting letters of intent for projects that will contribute to its goal of helping women and girls in the developing world achieve their potential, gain equality, and overcome economic limitations, and social bias.
Projects funded must address one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals; create lasting change in the lives of the women and/or girls who are affected; and provide solutions that have been identified by the women and/or girls. Grants will range between $35,000 and $50,000 and be distributed over a maximum duration of two years.
To be eligible, applicants must be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and have a minimum annual operating budget of $100,000.
Letters of Intent must be received no later than October 24. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal before the end of the year.
