A Plan of One's Own: A Woman's Guide to Philanthropy

According to A Plan of One's Own: A Woman's Guide to Philanthropy (43 pages, PDF), women account for 1.6 million of America's top wealth holders, representing a combined net worth of almost $2.2 trillion. And because women tend to live longer than men, they can expect to end up in charge of much of the multi-trillion-dollar wealth transfer expected to take place over the next fifty years. Developed by the Baltimore Giving Project and New Ventures in Philanthropy, the guide discusses what motivates women to give, the philanthropic avenues open to them, and the steps they should take to create an effective charitable giving plan.
