Jewish Women in Philanthropy: A Conversation with Susan Stern | eJewish Philanthropy: The Jewish Philanthropy Blog
Jewish Women in Philanthropy: A Conversation with Susan Stern | eJewish Philanthropy: The Jewish Philanthropy Blog: "Much of the most recent data tracking various “groups” of donors centers directly on women. In our professional dealings with donors and nonprofits, we know that some women donors might be more likely to fund programs designated specifically for the benefit of women. This pattern is largely a response to practices traced to the years when organizations historically were run entirely by men who were not especially sensitive to female motivations. So women donors today are making a point to speak out more loudly and are making demonstrable impact on decision-making processes . . . both in their individual households regarding charitable priorities and in institutions which are allocating precious resources."
