Did you know that women-centric giving societies make up 48.5% of all philanthropic giving? Women are becoming the family decision makers on philanthropic giving and are more likely than men to want to learn about impact investing. Join us for a panel discussion on what motivates female donors to give, how they give, and how to engage them. Topics will include women's giving circles and societies.
- Participants will learn how female philanthropy impacts overall giving
- Participants will learn about donor motivation and engagement
- Participants will hear from development professionals who are successfully facilitating women's giving societies and how/why they are successful
