What is Dining For Women?

Dining for Women is a global giving circle that funds grassroots projects working in developing countries to fight gender inequality. We celebrate the power of the individual to see an injustice and act to change it; to see need and act to fill it. Dining for Women’s members are deeply involved in the grantees we support and the problems we seek to address. Our education component is equally as important as our fundraising.

Although we raised more than $5 million between 2003 and 2015, our members are generally not wealthy. The average donation is $35 – just about the amount you might spend for a weeknight dinner out. Our collective-giving model is proving that small contributions, aggregated together, can make a huge difference.

Members come together for a potluck dinner once a month. We share camaraderie and learn about that month’s featured programs through videos, educational documents and presentations, and free and open discussion. Funds raised each month go to fund the featured and sustained grantees, as well as support the entire mission of Dining for Women.
