Women and Philanthropy

Posted on November 7, 2012

In an article by Tamar Snyder, she discusses the incorrect assumption that only men can be philanthropists.  According to research, however, women are more likely to donate to charities than men.  She then proceeds to list different strategies and tips to help women be in control of their philanthropic activities.  Some of these include making certain “giving traditions” or joining a giving circle, where groups of people put their money together and decide where to donate it.

I believe that it is important for everyone, both men and women, to realize that we can all be philanthropists.  In order to give in the most effective way possible, we must do our research and give with intent and purpose.  In this way we can all make a much greater difference where it is needed.
