Dining for Women

A NWUUC Dining for Women chapter formed in 2014. The group meets almost every month to learn about and support a Dining for Women Project. All women are invited to participate.

CHANGING THE WORLD ONE WOMAN, ONE GIRL, ONE DINNER AT A TIME

Dining for Women is a global giving circle that funds grassroots projects working in developing countries to fight gender inequality. Dining for Women celebrates 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 have invested more than $6 million in grants and partnerships since our inception in 2003, our members are generally not wealthy. Our average donation is $25 – 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.
