Women's Giving Circles: Reflections from the Founders adds the valuable perspective of personal narrative to understanding the growth of giving circles over the past ten years. Focused on the motivations, challenges, and opportunities of the 18 giving circle founders interviewed, the booklet is a testament to two factors that propelled this grassroots phenomenon – media interest and the powerful women’s social network.
This guide examines women's roles in philanthropy and features “how to” sections on creating and using a variety of forms of charitable giving, as well as working with professional advisers.
