Welcome to Philanthropy Women, a New Home for Donor Activists

Hello again, world. It’s me, Kiersten. I’ve decided to develop a new website to help you become a healthier, more peaceful, and more secure place. It’s called Philanthropy Women.

That’s me! Kiersten Marek, Founder and Editor, Philanthropy Women

For the past two years, I have been writing about women in philanthropy for Inside Philanthropy. It has been a wonderful and eye-opening experience, and has inspired me to take my own interest in women and philanthropy to a self-sustaining level.

More women are discovering the value of their perspective in philanthropy and are leading the way with better solutions to big social problems. Philanthropy Women seeks to magnify and amplify these women and their allies, so that we can help guide efforts at making our world more sane and whole.

Philanthropy Women aims to be a hub for news and information about women donors and their allies. We will be covering news about funding — both the givers and the getters of grants for women and girls. We will be talking a lot about women-driven grantmaking strategies. We will be watching where the money is flowing in philanthropy for gender equality, with a particular eye toward analyzing why money is going in certain directions, and how effective that grantmaking appears to be.

Please subscribe for free daily updates (upper right corner of the page), and you will receive an email once a day with the day’s new posts. For advertisers, we are offering competitive rates for prime visibility in our sidebar. For foundations and nonprofits in philanthropy, we also have a  job board where you can advertise jobs in philanthropy.

Thanks for joining me on this unprecedented journey into highlighting and understanding the growing role of women in philanthropy. I hope you enjoy the ride.
