Who We Are

Donor Direct Action (DDA) is a fund for women that strengthens front line women's rights activists around the world by increasing their access to financial resources, political leaders, and media visibility.

What We Do

Donor Direct Action connects individual donors to strong and effective front line women’s rights activists, maximizing the impact of their contributions. 90% of every donation made to support our partners is regranted directly to them.

Why We Do it

Only 1% of all “gender equality funding” goes to women’s rights organizations and even less to front line women’s groups. We believe investing in front line activists is the best way to achieve global gender equality.

GALVANIZING EMERGENCY SUPPORT FOR WOMEN IN BEIRUT, LEBANON

On August 4, 2020 a massive explosion struck the city of Beirut. Our longstanding Lebanese partner KAFA began its emergency response immediately - the explosion destroyed the lives of many women and children who were supported by KAFA’s programs. We launched an urgent fundraising drive to help KAFA provide food, housing, and other emergency services to affected women and families. We received an outpouring of contributions from 57 donors in 12 countries and regranted over US $50,000 within weeks. Our ability to galvanize strategic and timely support for front line women’s organizations is what makes Donor Direct Action unique.
