Product description

From the Inside Flap

Women′s philanthropy has led the way in virtually reinventing the world of fundraising and ways of giving. When women make a gift, are in a leadership position, or volunteer their time to a nonprofit or charitable organization, they tend to base their efforts on solid principles such as compassion, values, vision, and responsibility.

Women are increasingly engaged in giving circles, global giving, transformative gifts, entrepreneurial giving, faith–based giving, family and couple giving, and social change gifts. Based on extensive interviews and the authors′ combined half century of experience, Women and Philanthropy shares new ways to better engage women in giving, as well as insights into developing women leaders in the nonprofit arena, and advises women seeking to develop as philanthropic leaders and shape the future for the better.

Women and Philanthropy explores women′s philanthropic endeavors, offering a wealth of information on key topics such as how and why women give, what it takes to develop a gender–sensitive fundraising program, how to develop a strategic plan to involve women as leaders and donors, and suggestions for working with women of wealth.
