DWF Mission Statement
The Designing Women Foundation (DWF), a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is dedicated to the cultural and educational enrichment of youth and women. It promotes literacy and provides scholarships to the financially disadvantaged regardless of age, race or religion. It seeks to identify, champion and protect young people “at risk.” It also encourages understanding and tolerance by bringing informational programs and speakers to the local community. DWF is a companion organization to the Claudia Foundation, founded by Linda Bloodworth Thomason, creator of the long-running television series “Designing Women” and other popular shows.
