Editorial Reviews

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.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By S. Beaudoin on September 13, 2010
Format: Hardcover
A clarion call for the importance of making a difference, in your own life as well as in the lives of others, through philanthropy. Incredibly wise and energizing, this book is rife with the philosophy, advice, anecdotes, and possibilities of giving. I can't think of a better way to start the cycle on a grassroots level than by giving a copy of this book to all the people you know who are committed to improving the world around them. And, maybe more importantly, to all the people you know who aren't.

Format: Hardcover
As someone who has been politically active my entire life, I was pleased to see the authors point out how women are generously sharing their earnings and wealth both philanthropically and politically. One quote in particular in the book from Julie Weeks, president and CEO of Womenable, struck me when she said that she believes when women are empowered philanthropically, when they are engaged in communities and in charge of their own lives economically and socially, there will be more collaborative decision making and less harshness in national politics. A much desired change for the better.
