About Donor Direct Action
Donor Direct Action advances women’s rights by connecting front-line activists to front-line donors. Limited access to funding and other support weakens women’s organizations’ ability to sustain their impact, and wastes the vital benefits they could offer. Our goal is to link front line women’s rights partners around the world to money, visibility, & popular support with minimum bureaucracy and maximum impact.
A number of women’s organizations operate with annual income of less than $100,000, and many may have less than $25,000. While the global women’s movement continues to grow, it is positioned well-ahead of its resource base. Donor Direct Action continuously partners activists with donors to help build resources that will in turn support this tremendous growth.
We work with front-line activist groups who are selected based upon their strong leadership and greater potential impact. Some of the groups include the Women’s Centre for Legal Aid & Counseling (WCLAC), Embrace Dignity, Syrian Women’s Forum for Peace (SWFP), the Marta Centre among many others.
