Giving To The Givers

DAWA is a platform that invests in BIPOC community and culture

DIVERSITY AWARENESS and  WELLNESS in ACTION

We believe in a world where DIVERSITY is a source of strength, AWARENESS normalizes challenging the status quo, WELLNESS is a collective journey, and ACTION means equitable investment of time and resources to historically underrepresented populations. 
HOW DOES IT WORK?

Our theory of change is that when we invest in the essential work of Austin’s BIPOC Community Frontliners, the entire community benefits.

 

GIVING TO THE GIVERS through direct investment in the creatives, teachers, social workers, healthcare providers, and service industry workers has an amplifying effect that creates lasting impact on overall community health and well-being.
