What is DasvandhWeek?
DasvandhWeek is our opportunity as a community to continue supporting the work of Sikh activists. It is an annual giving challenge during which donations on dvnetwork.org are MATCHED 1:1, according to the matching policy, until the matching fund is exhausted. DasvandhWeek 2023 will run from November 10th to the 19th, and donors can DOUBLE their donations to 80+ Sikh-led organizations and their projects. The matching code will be live at 12PM EST on November 10th, 2023.
