Women in Philanthropy: Expanding Horizons in Higher Education

Our Project

Over the past 40 years, women’s philanthropy has emerged as an exceptional field for making change. Women from around the world have invested their intellectual, financial, social, and cultural capital in order to improve the quality of life for people and our planet. This project showcases the “new frontier” of women’s philanthropy and highlights a gendered approach to giving that is sensitive to the experiences of women and historically marginalized individuals. Through innovative collaborations, this project raises awareness within the field of Women’s Philanthropy, connecting women philanthropists from around the world to engage in relationship building, continued education, and leadership development.
