Women and Philanthropy: New Research and New Strategies from Fidelity Charitable 

Presenter, Elaine Martyn, Vice President of the Private Donor Group at Fidelity Charitable, will discuss Fidelity’s research, with particular attention to the interests of women in collective giving organizations. Before joining Fidelity she was at Global Fund for Women, which makes her particularly aware of the connections between local and worldwide issues.

 Nov. 14 “If Only We Knew Then What We Know Now!” Lessons Learned During Organizational Growth Stages
As founders leave active leadership, organizations grow in size, and governance and administrative structures change, all WCGN member groups face similar issues. 
This webinar features two women whose groups have been through these processes, and have advised others of us on how to handle them.

Presenters: Beth McCaw, Washington Women's Foundation, and Lauren Paver, Impact Austin.

Moderator: Jenny Berg, Impact 100 Cincinnati
 Jan. 9 Innovative Programs: Your Secret Weapon for Attracting and Retaining Members Searching for an effective way to engage members and attract new ones? This webinar presents good ideas from two WCGN member organizations.

 Feb. 13 Grants Creating Ripples: Impacts on Our Grantees, Our Communities, and Ourselves  
Research tells us that measuring results is important, and the experience of organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation validates that lesson. But collective giving organizations give a variety of grants over the long term, creating something like an artist's portfolio. Are there ripple effects, impacts that go beyond a particular grant? In this webinar, experienced grantmakers think about how their grants have impacted the grantee, the community, and the collective giving organization itself.
 Mar. 13 Endowments: How to Get Started, and How to Use Them
Many WCGN member organizations consider establishing an endowment, or have recently done so. This webinar puts together the best insights on founding and funding an endowment, and how organizations might use endowment earnings.
 Apr. 10 Motivating Volunteers: Getting their Best Without Burning Them Out
Women’s collective giving organizations often share the same problem as their grantees: how to keep going without exhausting their volunteers and leadership. Experienced “volunteer-wranglers” reflect on some ways to keep the organization vital and the leadership pool rich and energetic.
