The Women’s Philanthropy Institute at the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy focused their 2014 research, Women Give 2014, on the impact of religion as a key influencer of women’s philanthropy. Religiosity has long been seen as a key influencer for individual charitable giving but what about the impact of both religion and gender on philanthropic giving?
Last week, my colleagues Angela White, Dan Schipp and I attended a dinner in Indianapolis to recognize a true leader in the field of philanthropy. Dr. Eugene Tempel will retire early in 2015 as Founding Dean of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. The evening was a very special one with many attendees and several speakers. The announcement of an endowed Deanship for the School in Gene’s name was both surprising and highly appropriate.
JGA’s own Senior Consultant and CEO Angela White was prominently featured in national news coverage this week discussing the philanthropic implications of the latest study released by the Women’s Philanthropy Institute.

Bank of America and the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University recently published the fourth volume in a series of highly informative studies they have produced examining the philanthropic behavior of high net worth individuals.
The most recent iteration of this study examined the specific philanthropic traits and preferences of high net worth women by combining previous data with a national survey of the American Red Cross’s Tiffany Circle, a group of female donors giving more than $10,000 each annually.
