Study on race, gender and giving

The Women’s Philanthropy Institute at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy recently completed the first study of the intersection of race, gender and philanthropy.

Its report, entitled Women Give 2019: Gender and Giving Across Communities of Color, shares WPI’s findings that generosity is a value shared by all communities, and that women across race and ethnicity are leading through philanthropy. The study also demonstrates the unique perspectives women of color bring to philanthropy and underscores the importance of understanding and engaging donors from diverse backgrounds
