Event Description:

Women have contributed time and talent to effect social change for centuries and across nations and cultures. Today, they can add a third resource—treasure. As women earn and inherit more wealth, new women-centered forms of philanthropy have blossomed. Innovative models, such as giving circles and women’s funds, offer collaborative and accessible ways to contribute. This interactive program will feature Judy O’Bannon, former First Lady of Indiana, and will showcase the stories of ordinary women doing extraordinary things. Small group discussions will help women prioritize their giving goals and develop new ideas. A resource fair will highlight volunteering and giving opportunities among local nonprofits. Admission is free, but space is limited; pre-register by October 31. Presented by the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, Central Indiana Women’s Business Center, Girls Inc., Impact 100, IUPUI Office for Women, United Way of Central Indiana, and Women’s Fund of Central Indiana, an affiliate of the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
