What is a Chapter
“DFW’s strength lies in the synergy that’s created when friends gather to connect, to learn and to give, and when this powerful model is replicated over and over in our chapters in communities all over the world.” - Marsha Wallace
A DFW Chapter is group of people who:
Meet at least four times a year* in a wide variety of formats (the format may vary from that of other DFW groups), i.e., lunch meetings, dinner meetings, getting together for coffee, or via workplace, high school, church, service, campus, or other chapters.
Learn about the most urgent issues affecting women and girls living in extreme poverty worldwide, including illiteracy, health care, sex trafficking, water and food security, education, human rights, economic self-sufficiency, and many other challenges.
Donate to the DFW-designated monthly organizations that address these urgent issues, knowing our collaborative gifts make more of an impact than our individual gifts. Eighty-five percent of all contributions go directly to our selected international programs, with 15 percent allocated to DFW.
*Our Virtual Chapter meets online monthly via WebEx. Our Virtual Chapter Leader presents program information, interviews, a video, questions and discussion, and an opportunity to make an online donation. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Some people attend a Virtual Chapter meeting to find out what it's like, then go on to connect to a chapter in their area or start a new chapter.
If you would like to visit a chapter or start a chapter, please fill out the Get Involved form. We'll be in touch soon to let you know if there's an open chapter in your area or how to get started with your own.
Our international chapter applications are temporarily on-hold as we research the legal requirements for the growing demand to expand globally.
