    Martha has done some amazing work on recognizing the contributions of women donors, especially in institutional philanthropy, where many women tend not to be immediately acknowledged. Her wisdom continues to inform my daily prospect development practice working with local social service agencies. I’m so grateful that she’ll continue to dedicate her time to growing women’s philanthropy in the future. You go, Martha!
