When people hear the word philanthropist, they often think of men who are millionaires: John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, and Bill Gates. Jenny Norris Peterson, a women's philanthropy consultant and speaker, is writing a book about 30 astonishingly generous Minnesota women. The women in Jenny's book vary widely in age, financial capacity, religion, ethnicity, and charitable interest. They all found powerful ways to change the world through their giving, whether they were middle income or extremely wealthy. Women already are giving extraordinary gifts, and more will be inspired to do so when they are invited to imagine themselves as philanthropists. Jenny will share inspiring stories of philanthropic women with you and demonstrate how telling stories is a way to open minds and hearts to becoming generous. Come learn how to use stories to generate more major gifts and legacy gifts for your mission.
