The Women’s Philanthropy Institute at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI has named Jeannie Sager director. She previously served as director of philanthropy at the Indiana University Health Foundation.
An established philanthropy leader, Sager brings a wealth of expertise and more than 25 years of nonprofit leadership and development experience in a variety of fields, including higher education, independent schools and healthcare. She has held key executive positions at several large nonprofit organizations.
A native Floridian, Sager previously served in senior executive positions at Methodist Health Foundation, the Indiana University School of Medicine and University High School of Indiana.
Over the past three decades, the field of women’s philanthropy has evolved and grown rapidly, as has the Women’s Philanthropy Institute (WPI) since its inception in 1991 (known then as the National Network of Women as Philanthropists).
Women today hold 40 percent of global wealth, and across nearly every income level, WPI’s research shows that women are more likely to give—and, on average, give more—than men.
WPI is the only academic institute dedicated to furthering the understanding of gender and philanthropy through research, education, and knowledge dissemination.
