Dining for Women is a national giving circle. There are three chapters located in Santa Cruz, CA with more than 400 chapters nationally and internationally. We “dine in” together once a month, each bringing a potluck dish to share, and send our “dining out” dollars to international programs empowering women. Through our members’ combined dinner donations, we support grass-roots programs for women fostering good health, education, vocational training, micro-credit loans and economic development. By educating our members about the circumstances of women living in some of the poorest countries in the world, our members become agents of change, inspired to make a difference through the power of collective giving.

Our monthly meetings are fun and informative and offer a way for women to meet other like-minded women within our community while making a difference in the world. To share the synergy of this group dynamic, the Santa Cruz chapters would also like to meet outside the monthly dinners and explore the culturally diverse, interesting, and beautiful area in which we live.

With that thought, we decided to create this Meet Up so our members, or those seeking to learn more about DFW, can join us for a variety of planned outings throughout the year. Hikes, movies, wine tasting, charitable events, book reviews, concerts or events, which align with the DFW mission. Please consider joining us.

If you’d like to be added to the monthly Santa Cruz meeting announcement and newsletter, please contact us via the link to the left to be added to the list. We promise not to flood your email box and you can opt out at any time. We never share or sell our list.
