ChildFund International’s Women’s Giving Circle

Now overseen by Dr. Stephanie Ferguson, a veterinary professional who took majority ownership of the company in 2005, DV Medical Supply distributes wholesale medical products and generic pharmaceuticals. Founded in 1978, the company has developed a sterling reputation in the health care industry. DV Medical Supply supports a number of charities, including ChildFund International, a nonprofit focused on ensuring that children are provided with environments that offer them the opportunity to reach their full potential.

The Women’s Giving Circle is one of the organization's many initiatives. Members give an annual contribution to the project, which is distributed to programs that have demonstrated the highest impact on children’s lives. Since 2015, funds from the circle have been channeled towards ChildFund’s Early Child Development program, with the aim of offering the children it supports the strongest possible start in life.

Women's Giving Circle members are offered the opportunity to network with fellow members, in addition to gaining access to a yearly web seminar conducted by Anne Goddard, one of the leaders of the nonprofit. On average, members of the circle donate approximately $1,000, with each also earning special recognition in ChildFund’s annual records and a number of other publications.
