Economic support for projects aimed at women and girls

We fund projects that promote good health, education and economic self-sufficiency in developing countries. We are dedicated to educating and inspiring people to make a difference and fight global poverty through the power of collective giving.

Dining for Women selects one outstanding recipient each month and promotes him or her throughout the month at chapter meetings, through mailings, social media and online communications. Beneficiaries are assigned to be presented in a specific month based on thematic area and geography.

Dining for Women awards grants of $35,000-50,000 that can be disbursed in one distribution or that can be taken in up to two equal distributions spanning a two-year period.
