    Many donors are tired of writing checks each year to organizations, the tax code is changing, and donors' overall approach to funding social goals is changing. We are seeing larger gifts from fewer donors, but how do we continue to cultivate and steward those relationships while maintaining a very donor-centric approach?

     

    On September 25th, Avery Tucker Fontaine, Head of Strategic Philanthropy at BNY Mellon Wealth Management, will share what she is learning from client work and research about shifting trends across the philanthropic landscape.

     

    Now more than ever, nonprofit organizations must be well versed in the areas of wealth management, social investment, and trends within their sector so that they can offer prospects and donors a deeply thoughtful approach to philanthropy and ensure their organizations can evolve to meet the needs of donors.

     

    Who should attend?

    This event is recommended for experienced professionals interested in delving into the specifics of new approaches to wealth management and nonprofit operations. The evening will be capped at 40 guests to ensure the ability to have an in-depth conversation and will include wine and hors d'oeuvres.

    The WID Executive Series Presents

    From Data to Action: Using Research About Gender & Giving to Change Behaviors


    Wednesday, October 23rd
    6:00 - 8:00 p.m.


    CCS Fundraising
    527 Madison Avenue, 5th Floor
    New York, NY 10022

     

    Over the last decade, the Women’s Philanthropy Institute has conducted dozens of studies examining how and why women give. How can we use this research to transform behaviors so that fundraisers can meet donors where they are and not leave dollars on the table?

     

    In this interactive session, participants will learn how women and men give differently, reflect on the research, and brainstorm how to apply it in practice. This session style allows participants to grapple with the research, own it, and think creatively about how to use it to prompt behavior change and develop new strategies.

     

    Join Andrea Pactor, Interim WPI Director, and Jacqueline Ackerman, WPI Associate Director of Research, for an enlightening evening, which will provide WiD executive members with an insider's view of how to bring groundbreaking fundraising research to life and by doing so, enhance your own fundraising strategy.

     

    This event is exclusively for Consultant, Director, Chief Officer, Vice President, or Executive Director/CEO WID members. If your title is other than Consultant, Director, Chief Officer, Vice President, or Executive Director/CEO, please email widny@widny.org to clarify your professional role before registering so we can confirm if this event is the right fit.


    There are a limited number of spaces available, so register now for this unique opportunity!

    The Confidence Code:

    The Science and Art of
    Self-Assurance – What Every Woman Should Know

     

    Thursday, October 24

    6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

    Shakespeare & Co.

    2020 Broadway


    During our 40th anniversary year, Women In Development is pleased to launch our first-ever book group as a benefit to our members. WID members are invited to meet for lively, intimate discussions about books that are shaping our view of ourselves, our work, and our world.

    WID Lit is free for members. Wine, coffee, tea, and light bites are available in the Shakespeare & Co. café (pay-as-you-go, with a 10% discount). Members are encouraged to buy copies of the books at Shakespeare & Co.

    For our first meeting, we will read The Confidence Code, by Kitty Kay and Claire Shipman.


    Following the success of Lean In and Why Women Should Rule the World, the authors of the bestselling Womenomics provide an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence—and learning how to achieve it—for women of all ages and at all stages of their careers.


    Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.


    Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to "lean in." Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.
