The Congolese Women’s Forum for Peace and Security

September 27, 2017 | 4 minutes
Meryl Streep spoke on behalf of Donor Direct Action in a video for the The Congolese Women's Forum for Peace and Security. Donor Direct Action partners with organizations around the world that have tremendous yet largely unrealized potential for growth and impact, based on strong leadership and a proven track record. We give donors an opportunity to level the playing field by investing their funds where they will go further and be more strategically deployed. We identify partners through our well-established global networks – sometimes those activists doing the best work on the front lines are least able to afford the time and resources needed to develop glossy fundraising materials or to pull together successful fundraising teams. Once selected, partner organizations are vetted in accordance with applicable US laws. Donor Direct Action reviews their audited financial statements, and communicates regularly with them in an effort to help them strengthen their work and their organizational infrastructure.
