    Changing Times, Changing Behaviors:
    A Conversation About Women's Philanthropy,
    with Nicki Newman Tanner and Kathleen Loehr


    Monday, April 1, 2019
    Noon – 2:00 p.m.


    The Princeton Club
    15 West 43rd Street
    New York, NY


    Many non-profits make outdated assumptions about how to cultivate women donors and discover what motivates them to give. As a result, millions of philanthropic dollars may be lost in the process. Join us for what promises to be an enlightening discussion on the role of women in the philanthropic space and how we as fundraising professionals can take the right steps in our approach to women donors.


    Experienced volunteer fundraiser/philanthropist, Nicki Newman Tanner and celebrated author and thought leader on women's philanthropy, Kathleen Loehr, will offer invaluable insights on the topic. The conversation will be moderated by Women in Development (WiD), New York's President-Elect, Yolanda F. Johnson.


    About the Speakers:


    Kathleen Loehr is a Senior Consultant at the Aspen Leadership Group. Her partnership with nonprofit leaders is grounded in thirty years in the nonprofit sector. She combines nonprofit expertise, fundraising, coaching, and strategy to help individuals and groups navigate change. 


    Kathleen knows that women are more frequently in the philanthropic driver seat, given the increased money being earned and inherited, and their influence in the household giving. Kathleen translates the research on how women give into practical action fundraisers can take. Her book, Gender Matters: A Guide to Growing Women’s Philanthropy, was published by CASE in August 2018.


    Kathleen was a C-suite leader of fundraising for the American Red Cross, Save the Children, the International Crisis Group, and key departments at Cornell University. She is the chair of the Advisory Council for the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. Kathleen received a BA in Government from Cornell University’s College of Arts and Sciences.


    Nicki Newman Tanner grew up in Chicago and graduated from Wellesley College with a BA in English in 1957. In 1980 Nicki received a certificate from Columbia University and in 1981 became founding director of the UJA–Federation of Jewish Philanthropies Oral History Project, which she ran for more than 20 years. In the early 1980s she also did interviews for oral histories both for Columbia’s Oral History Archive and as freelance projects, preserving the stories of Lives of a Cell author Lewis Thomas and Commissioner of Parks Gordon Davis, as well as the histories of the Salvation Army and Pace University.


    A founding board member of the Jewish Women’s Archive, she served as board chair from 2004–2007. She served on the boards of Colonial Williamsburg and Hebrew Union College. She is currently a trustee and former Chair of New York Public Radio, and of Auburn Seminary, an organization devoted to the education of multi-faith leadership. 


    She served as co-chair of Wellesley’s record breaking capital campaign that concluded in 1993, having raised $168 million from alumnae and disproved the assumption that women give less than men. In 2000 she established the annual Tanner Conference at Wellesley to celebrate experiential learning and Wellesley students’ participation in the larger world.


    Nicki has written and spoken on both oral history and women’s philanthropy.
