Women’s Philanthropy Should Be Publicly Recognized

Janet Holmgren, Mills College President

Today, women’s philanthropy is an instrument of social change, a powerful vehicle for participating in a more socially responsible citizenry, and an expression of women’s capacity to think strategically. Astute giving leverages our resources to improve the quality of life for others.
We invest and intervene on behalf of women and girls, and a broad range of local and global concerns, while strengthening our leadership capacity and gaining a place at the table for women’s voices. "
