Women are changing philanthropy

Women are changing philanthropy: "Here's the second million-dollar question: Have you ever once regretted giving money to a charitable, educational or religious organization whose mission you believed in? I haven't. In fact, the memory of my past charitable giving makes me feel happy years later, even the small contributions, like the $50 to the Big Brothers Big Sisters bowl-athon, or the $10 I gave to public radio when I was in college and broke.

The power of women's philanthropy has been illuminated for me again in returning to Iowa after nearly 20 years away. Everywhere I look, women are deeply involved in giving, not just their time but their money as well."
