Thanks to Jacki Zehner for sharing these data about the differences - and similarities - between male and female donors at the USFR annual conference. What makes us happy that giving circles - like Women Moving Millions, the United Way's Women's Philanthropic Network and our own Giving Circle are a favorite tool for women. The Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2011 Study of High Net Worth Women's Philanthropy found
- Women’s networks were also found to be highly positive for women donors, the study found women in networks are more loyal to philanthropic causes, more educated and informed about philanthropic choices, and more trusting of nonprofits than others. The study found that women in giving networks are more intentional about their gifts of time and money.
