financial and creative capital to address today’s pressing social needs. The
most impactful philanthropy, however, is accomplished through focused,
intentional leadership that draws upon innovation in the field and collaborative
Southern California Grantmakers cordially
invites you to join friends and colleagues in the relaunch of WomenGive! on
Tuesday, February 23, 2010, at the Luxe Hotel in Brentwood.
We will take a thoughtful look at how women philanthropists can understand
and direct their evolving leadership roles, as well as ways to catalyze and
source best practices as philanthropists.
Participants will hear
from--and interact with--national legacy mentor and philanthropic advisor Tracy
Gary, a member of the Pillsbury family and the great granddaughter
of the inventor of the dial telephone. Gary is a leader in the Women Moving
Millions initiative, a groundbreaking partnership of women donors
who have raised more than $181 million to address critical social issues like
poverty and global security.
Gary will address how women philanthropists,
both individually and collectively, can learn and work together to effect
greater change in our communities and the world. She will also share trends and
tools to help leverage individual philanthropy for greatest impact. The event
will conclude with high tea and networking.
