Our Approach

 

Our Work

 

We work collaboratively with like-minded organizations that are working towards common goals. We believe that by working together, we can be more efficient and effective, ultimately achieving a greater impact. DKM seeks to be catalytic; we strive to create transformational change that goes beyond merely writing a cheque by leveraging our resources to drive systemic social change.

DKM is a grant-making organization and provides direct grants to Canadian Registered Charities. We do not accept unsolicited proposals. We encourage potential partners to review our website before contacting us for funding opportunities.
