- Less than 1% of philanthropic dollars go to Asian American communities. While this is a staggering figure given the relative size of the API population, imagine the dismal amounts that trickle down to the Cambodian American communities! The Devata Giving Circle is working to change this! Vote for us!
- Last year we granted out over $10,000 to four great community based organizations. Here’s what they were able to do with the support of the Devata Giving Circle: provide safe spaces and options for young women at risk of sexual exploitation, give voice to survivors of the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields who have long been silenced, heal and give hope to a generation of women lost between the cracks, and supporting a community that continues to struggle in the inner-city poverty and violence. Share in this great work with us; vote for us!
- We are a group of AMAZING and DEDICATED Cambodian American women who want advance our communities. Empower our community. Empower our circle. Vote for us!
Here’s what we’ll do with the prize money.
100% of the prize will go directly to DGC’s 2012 bold grantees who are dedicated to building a generation of fiercely passionate and courageous Cambodian American women leaders .
