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 Pactor, MA, Associate Director, Women’s Philanthropy Institute

Snoop Dreams: The Expression of Personality in Everyday Contexts

How are we connected to the spaces in which we live and work? How do our living rooms, bedrooms, offices, music collections, and Facebook profiles reflect what we are like and, more fundamentally, who we are? We are so tightly bound to our living and work spaces that many of the connections linking people and places go unnoticed. But these environments are rich with information about our values, attitudes, preferences, and personality. This talk will present the result of a decade’s worth of research unraveling the links between people and the worlds they craft around themselves.
