45 minute webinar
Our October discussion explores emerging tools for high-leverage giving. Join us for a discussion that answers: What are social venture philanthropy and impact investing? Is microfinance a good use of my charitable dollars? Is there a role for a business-like approach that can maximize the return on my "investment" in philanthropy?
Anyone—woman or man—may participate in this online discussion with Catalytic Women as our guest, at no charge. Donors and wealth/financial advisors may find this discussion especially useful. To join us on October 3, please RSVP using the form below and skip payment information. (Until 2013, Catalytic Women webinars are offered at no charge.)
Many new tools for giving combine the best of business and philanthropy. This presentation will share studies, trends and best practices in leveraging your gifts to make the greatest impact in the communities you support.
Melanie Hamburger will tap the expertise of Catalytic Women members and advisors in showing examples and case studies. She will draw upon resources and best practices from the members-only library, as well as models that blend good business and good intentions. Join us for this practical discussion of how to make gifts that tap some of the highest return models of business to create significant impact in the world around us—and bring business tools to solving community issues.
As Principal of Catalytic Women, Melanie Hamburger has a vision of convening a community of women leaders who are influential decision-makers in wealth and giving. She is an expert in tools for effective giving, community involvement, and social innovation, and has gathered many of these resources for members of Catalytic Women in an online library of nationwide philanthropic resources.
Catalytic Women curates innovations in philanthropy and offers resources to emerging audiences of women donors—women in technology, women financial advisors, and women leading family giving. Through in-person and online convenings, Catalytic Women creates opportunities where women connect with other thought leaders to redefine "wealth." By leveraging their time and talent into funding high-impact nonprofit models, women are funding critical social services and serving as catalysts for broad global change.
