Our Charities

As a 501(c)(3), DCW hosts an annual spring charity event in Atlanta, GA to support our three charities.  Our fundraiser includes a silent auction featuring mobile bidding, a raffle and In Honor Of/In Memory Of donations.  Each donation is displayed and identified during our event, acknowledged in our monthly newsletter to our 800+ active members and supported by a tax-deductible receipt.  Our success is based on the generosity and support of friends and businesses.  The following are our named charities:
