Characteristically, women take an active role in the charitable life of their communities. They are active volunteers and comprise the majority of charitable givers. When women unite to combine resources for the benefit of their cities and towns, amazing things happen. This session will explore how smaller communities can create self-directed women’s giving collectives that reach across age, ethnic, and economic lines to create a unified force for good that allows participants to learn about needs and opportunities in their community and, through combined contributions, have lasting, positive impact through self-directed grants.
