Solving complex and challenging problems around the world requires perspective, grit, and leadership from men and women. Simply put: gender matters in philanthropy. The Women’s Philanthropy Institute (WPI) exists to:
- Carry this message forward;
- Deepen our understanding about how, when, and why gender matters in charitable giving and volunteering;
- Change societal perceptions about who is philanthropic.
The WPI helps to better understand the powerful role of women as leaders in 21st century philanthropy, and how to leverage that power for the common good.
Donors, fundraisers, advisors, and leaders across the nonprofit, government, and business sectors benefit from the WPI's empirical data and innovative programs that inspire bold, transformative philanthropy.
