You Can Help DREF Continue to Give the Gift of Possibilities!

During this traditional time of giving and sharing, I offer our most sincere thanks for your gifts of kindness and care. DREF appreciates you Standing Firm with us as we continue to have a positive impact upon the lives of African American women, their families, and the communities we serve.

Holiday Message from DREF Board President


I want you to know that your steadfast support has provided resources for our charitable and educational programs.  The scholarships that DREF awards, the Delta Teacher Efficacy Campaign and Teachers Advocating to lead Great change (DTEC-TAG), as well as our Community Empowerment Grantmaking and the Center for Research on African American Women benefit tremendously from your donations.


The need to help African American women and their families is greater now than ever before. DREF’s work to support them depends upon our ability to Stand Firm to Create Possibilities and Improve Lives.


I am asking that you consider making an End-of-Year donation to DREF.  Gifts of any amount are welcomed Your generosity ensures that DREF can make a difference in the lives of many.


Kindly note that we have included a new giving option for our new End-of-Year Appeal.  If you desire to do so, you may contribute “In honor of” or “In memory of” someone special in your life. A donation of $100 or more can be designated as one of those tributes.


In closing, I extend my most sincere good wishes for a safe, healthy, and joyous holiday season. Thank you for caring and your steadfast support.
