13.76 Campaign

Your gift of $13.76 a month provides safe and dignified work for survivors of human trafficking, overcomers of substance use, and those creating safe housing after homelessness.

Help us reach our goal of 1000 monthly donors to continue funding our transitional work experience for our community's most vulnerable women.

$13.76 = one hour of a living wage salary for a DFJ Artisan
(Two living wage hours = $27.52, Five living wage hours = $68.80)

Create a monthly donation or a one time gift of any amount using your debit card, credit card or PayPal here.


Donate tools needed to keep our women working and creating.


"It's not the machine that we need. We need the machine
to provide work for living wage jobs for the most vulnerable women in Raleigh."

Simply choose an item from this collection and complete the checkout process. You're actually making a financial donation, and we'll use that money to support the DFJ mission. When checkout is complete, you will receive an emailed receipt to confirm your tax-deductible donation.
