Research that Grows Women’s Philanthropy

Women are driving philanthropy in unprecedented ways, given their $5.15 trillion in assets, and the equal or higher amount they are inheriting due to the intergenerational transfer of wealth.  In most houses they make or influence philanthropic decisions.  Consumer companies market products towards women – they recognize that women control the majority of wealth in this country and are the household’s chief financial officers.

This hands-on session will explore how fundraisers can use research about gender and philanthropy to work smarter, not harder in raising funds needed to meet their organization’s mission.  Find out why and how women hold the key to philanthropy in the 21st century.

 Andrea is co-author with Dr. Dwight Burlingame on a chapter on the history of donor education and with Dr. Debra Mesch on research and women’s philanthropy for From Donor to Philanthropist:  The Value of Donor Education in Creating Confident, Joyful Donors, published in 2013 by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.  She is also co-author of chapters on women and philanthropy, notably in Fundraising Principles and Practices, Leadership in Nonprofit Organizations, and Achieving Excellence in Fundraising.
