is an educational giving circle whose members collectively support international grassroots programs that empower women and girls living in extreme poverty, including programs that foster good health, improve access to education, and boost economic self-sufficiency for women and girls in developing countries.
To that end, DFW is inviting Letters of Intent for projects that will contribute to its goal of helping women and girls in the developing world realize their potential, achieve equality, and overcome economic limitations and social biases. 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, to 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 operations budget of $100,000.
Letters of Intent must be received no later than April 11. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by July 1, 2018.
See the DFW website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
