Empowering Women of Color around the world

The John and Susan Dewan Foundation began in January 2000 following the completion of the sale of STATS, Inc., a sports information company the Dewans founded in the 1980s.  Through the foundation’s grant program, we provide hope and a future to people in poverty by supporting U.S.-based charitable organizations that help people to help themselves.

Learn more about John and Susan's desire to make a difference in the Summer 2023 issue of LUMEN magazine. 

One of the many programs we support

of Timbuktu.
