Margaret May DamenMajor Gifts & Women In Philanthropy

Led by Margaret May Damen
President and Founder, The Institute for Women and Wealth

"Who Am I Really, and What Is My Legacy?" Boom-Generation Women who came of age in the 60s and 70s writing their own road map for life enter midlife facing mortality with a new agenda.

Whether it's Annual Gifts, Major Gifts or Planned Gifts, the New Rules apply.

Legacy planning can offer answers that are win-win for women, philanthropic organizations and society's future well-being. (Sorry, Henry Higgins, "Why should a woman be more like a man?")

Boomer women are 38 million of the healthiest, wealthiest and best educated women ever to hit midlife. Recent surveys confirm their number one high-priority issue is a "desire to make a difference."

You need insight and confidence to effectively communicate and market your planned giving program to women. An understanding of the five peer-personality traits unique to boomer women will help you work with the women who set the rules.

Discover how to attract and maintain their Trust, Loyalty and Commitment (TLC) in our patriarchal society.

Insight into the "culture of boomer women" gives you the tools and strategies necessary for successful legacy planning.

You Will Learn To:

  • Acquire communication and marketing skills needed to "Speak Female"
  • Recognize and understand the five peer personality traits of boomer women
  • Motivate and mobilize the most efficient referral network for your organization
  • Justify a ROI for a women's initiative program and staff
  • Broaden your knowledge and awareness of the "culture of women" and their giving styles
  • Manage the TLC expectations of your women donors

Who Should Attend?
Executive Directors, Development Directors, Development Staff, Board Members – anyone who looks to boomer women for major and/or planned gifts.
