Gender matters in philanthropy.
How much more could be raised if women were met where they are at?
Other sectors have adapted to the reality that women are the CFOs of their homes. It’s time for the nonprofit sector to adapt, too.
If we adapt for women, we get all donors. But if we maintain our current approaches, we might still get men, but we won’t get women.
How, why, & where women give. And increase giving by all.
Fundraisers aren’t paying attention to women.
If your organization is committed to DEI, you should be committed to paying attention to who you are engaging in supporting your mission.
