Date: Wednesday, December 5, 2012
Time: 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET
Duration: 45 minutes
Our December discussion will help you create focus for your giving in the year ahead. Join us for a conversation that will answer: With so many requests, what's the best way to focus my gifts to the issues I care about most? How can I be kind in saying "no" to the organizations that don't match my interests (or to the friends who ask!)? Is it OK to decide to make some gifts in support of others' interests, even if they're not my own?
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.

End of year requests for donations can feel overwhelming. Each organization articulates such a compelling need—your resources are limited and it can be hard to decide which are most worthy of your financial support. This presentation will share studies, trends and best practices in creating a play to guide your giving, so your charitable contributions achieve the change you want to see in the world.
Melanie Hamburger will tap the expertise of Catalytic Women members and advisors, including Elizabeth Share, in showing examples and case studies. She will draw upon resources and best practices from Wise Giving, Inspired Legacies and our members-only library. Join us for this practical discussion of how to focus your giving to achieve maximum impact and personal satisfaction.
Elizabeth Share has been helping donors and nonprofits increase the impact of their work in communities worldwide for over 25 years. As founder of Wise Giving, she helps individuals and private foundations create focus and impact around their giving. Her private clients include the Isabel Allende Foundation, Khaled Hosseini Foundation, Chez Panisse Foundation, Grace Family Foundation, CompassPoint, and Nepalese Youth Foundation.
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.
