Giving Tuesday and End of Year Fundraising Campaign

by Designed For Joy

You're invited...

We are closing out 2020 with our biggest end-of-year campaign and we invite you to join with us as we continue to advocate for our community's most vulnerable women.

Many of our artisans have traveled hard-fought journeys to get where they are today - coming from poverty, human trafficking, prison and other vulnerable situations. This year added another twist - Covid-19.

As we look at the economic impact of Covid-19 on women in lower-wage jobs, we understand even more the importance of a living wage. Even pre-pandemic, those living on minimum wage were often forced to make difficult choices such as pay rent or buy food. 

From its beginning, DFJ has been committed to providing living wage work - in Raleigh that equates to $13.76 per hour. We have maintained this through Covid-19 even while adding additional artisans thanks to the generous support of our donors.


Won't you join us? Give today.


”DFJ is the only place in my life where I feel at peace and happy. I don’t want to leave at the end of the day. It’s the only positive environment I experience in my life right now. I know I can share my struggles freely and not be judged.” - Artisan
