We at Friendship Bridge always enjoy welcoming guests into our offices. Today we received an extra special surprise at the Lakewood office when Betty, a volunteer from Dining for Women, stopped by with a $15,000 grant check to show DFW’s support for Friendship Bridge programs (Betty is pictured with Karen Larsen, Executive Director and Michael Allen, Development Director). Thank you Dining for Women! This grant will support many clients in our Microcredit Plus program where women receive both loans and education.
DFW is an educational giving circle whose members meet monthly, learn about featured and sustained programs, and donate to DFW. All of this allows DFW to support grassroots international programs empowering women and girls living in extreme poverty. They fund programs that foster good health, education, and economic self-sufficiency in developing countries. They are devoted to educating and inspiring individuals to make a difference and fight global poverty through the power of collective giving, so you can see why Friendship Bridge and DFW make a perfect pair!
