Women Give 2010



Are women more generous than men? A growing body of research on charitable giving trends shows that women play a distinct and powerful role in philanthropy. The findings that tend to receive the most attention, however, focus on increased giving by affluent women. This creates a narrow understanding of giving by women, which this report seeks to broaden by providing a richer and more accurate analysis, and by answering the question, “Are there differences in philanthropic giving between men and women - across income levels?”

What's All The Fuss About "Women's Philanthropy?"Philanthropy

2011 February

Times have changed, and women may hold the key to philanthropy in the 21st century. According to research from the Women’s Philanthropy Institute, this is the case not just in the U.S., but worldwide; and it is not just high net worth women we are talking about, but all women. Demographics and research support women’s increasing influence, capacity, and desire to sit at the philanthropic table. Education and income are two key predictors of philanthropic behavior. Since the early 1970s women have gained more access to both. Women’s changing roles in society – single longer, fewer children, higher paying jobs – augment their ability for philanthropy.

Pledge to Give Away Fortunes Stirs DebatePhilanthropy

2010 November 10

WITHOUT a doubt, the biggest event in philanthropy this year was the Giving Pledge, a commitment by 40 of the wealthiest Americans to give away at least half of their fortunes, about $600 billion. Now, about three months later, the pledge has not yet visibly inspired new major gifts or attracted additional signatures but has surely created discussion and debate, about the wealthy, their giving and what it says about our society.

The Generosity PlanPhilanthropy

Kathy LeMay

LeMay’s new book, “The Generosity Plan,” argues that strategic beneficence is the key. Focus allows you to say no to solicitations more often than yes. Scattershot onetime gifts aren’t emotionally satisfying, and they confuse organizations, because they expect and solicit additional donations that don’t materialize.
