The DFB Difference

People often write checks to charitable organizations they care about, without the satisfaction of knowing exactly what the money is supporting.  DFB not only traces your dollars to a specific project, but empowers you to raise funds for tangible projects you identify yourself.  Perhaps your local homeless shelter needs new beds, or a hospital in Peru needs special equipment. We’ll help you mobilize your network and the larger DFB community to make an impact on causes that matter to you.
