WITH TWO DAUGHTERS OF MY OWN, I want to set an example of giving back to the community. I love supporting the Women’s Fund because my donations affect many different organizations and programs that help women and girls.
A philanthropist is an individual who makes an active effort to promote human welfare. Have you ever given of your time, talent, or treasure to help an individual or cause? If so, congratulations! You are a philanthropist. Many people have the misconception that philanthropic acts are reserved for the very wealthy, but most people are surprised to learn how even modest gifts add up during their lifetime. How Much will I Give During My Lifetime is a helpful worksheet to help you estimate your lifetime charitable giving.
Women are increasingly responsible for their personal and family wealth, including charitable giving and philanthropy. At the Women’s Fund, we believe charitable donations should be made in a strategic way to match your goals and values. Take a few minutes to do this brief exercise to see if your charitable giving reflects your values.
Women do have financial power to support causes important to them in a meaningful way.
