POW! Partnership for Women

Did you know women are changing the face of philanthropy?

National studies show women make 83% of all consumer purchases in the U.S. totaling over $12 trillion annually, and female-owned businesses are the fastest growing sector of the U.S. economy. In addition, female donors who participate in giving circles give more than other donors, give more strategically, and give to a greater number of organizations.
