This nonprofit gives direct help to women and children all over the developing world monthly. The research they do to find the constructive nonprofits and the oversight to ensure all the funding goes for the right uses is extraordinary. In addition, the concept of the giving circle for me has brought together other women interested in these issues and educated all of us as to the terrible proverty and critical issues still facing women in the 21st century. They are doing great work and having such an important impact.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My husband works for the State Department and is familiar with many of the nonprofits DFW contribute to. He indicates they consistently choose good, needy groups and has heard positive feedback.

I am a member of Dining for Women local chapter. I enjoy the special time spent with other local women, learning about other area of the world, and how we can help. I always leave feeling uplifted, and very blessed! We are so grateful for our blessings, and truly each of us are grateful for the opportunity Dining for Women allows to help others.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Superb! Women of all kinds of backgrounds coming together to help less fortunate women around the World. I wish every woman could experience Dining for Women even just once!
