Elevate Destinations, an award-winning, philanthropic travel company, is pleased to announce it has been selected as the official travel provider for Dining for Women, the world’s largest educational giving circle dedicated to transforming lives and eradicating poverty among women and girls in the developing world.
Dining for Women has more than 400 chapters and 8,000 members located in nearly every state in the U.S. Elevate’s new partnership will provide meaningful and inspirational travel experiences for Dining for Women members, allowing them to connect face-to-face with their grantees and the women and girls they serve.
Beth Ellen Hollimon, President of Dining for Women, said: “We are extremely excited about the innovative and varied trips that Elevate will offer our members. Our goal is that these experiences will deepen our members’ understanding of the issues faced by women in the developing world, especially the women we support, while fostering strong bonds of friendship with other travelers.”
“At a time when federal funding resources for organizations supporting women and girls’ health are being constricted by the Global Gag Rule, we feel it’s more important than ever to support women around the world. This partnership will allow Elevate Destinations to combine our passion for philanthropy, travel, and women’s empowerment.” said Katherine Redington, Director of Donor Travel for Elevate Destinations.
Elevate Destinations is the market leader in donor travel, bringing board members and major donors of nonprofits to visit projects on the ground. Dining for Women is joining a long list of leading international nonprofits such as Global Fund for Women, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, and Smile Train which have benefited from Elevate custom donor travel programs since 2005.
