A monthly gift can make a big impact! Join our Monthly Giving circle of donors, the Empowerment Circle, to sustain DASH programs year-roundClick here to choose, “Donation Frequency” to a monthly gift. 


Go casual for a day and do good!

Set up denim day donation drive – for a $5 donation to DASH, employees can wear jeans on a certain day(s) throughout the month! Here is a helpful marketing guide on how to set up and run your campaign with DASH.


You can support DASH through the United Way (#9391) and the Combined Federal Campaign (#99008). We also participate in the Community Connections Campaign at The World Bank. 

Employer Matching Gifts – does your employer match donations or make a donation in honor of employee volunteer hours? Check with your employer if they have a matching gift program and double your support for survivors! 


Leave a legacy by remembering DASH in your estate plans. You can designate DASH as a beneficiary of all or a portion of your estate – a way to make an impact to ensure access to safe housing for survivors and their children for years to come. It can be as simple as including a charitable bequest in your will or living trust or making a beneficiary designation.
