Through collective giving, Dining for Women funds projects that contribute to our goal of helping women and girls in the developing world achieve their potential, gain equality in their countries and cultures, and overcome economic limitations and social bias. Twice each year, we open a funding cycle to accept proposals from projects that meet our mission, vision and criteria. Applicant projects go through a rigorous process of evaluation by our Grant Selection Committee. Grants will be given in amounts not to exceed $50,000 and can be distributed over up to two years, although the funding is placed in reserve when the project is featured.
