Inaugural Giving List Women Summit Launches with a Unifying Rally Cry; Bridging Global Leaders, Nonprofits and Funders Around Intersectional Feminist Philanthropy

In the wake of new abortion bans and the overturning of the Weinstein conviction – compounded by the fact that currently less than 2% of all philanthropic dollars go to women’s orgs – Summit themes held steadfast to the need to honor women and girls as the most powerful lever of social change.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — On April 25 and 26, the Giving List Women hosted their inaugural Summit, which brought together prominent philanthropic and movement leaders from around the world to share perspectives on Intersectional Feminist Philanthropy. The motivating statistic for the Summit was the fact that women and girls’ organizations currently receive less than 1.8 % of philanthropic dollars, yet research shows that women and girls are the most powerful lever for change. The goal of the Summit is to broaden the tent of donors who understand women and girls must be seen as a lens of philanthropy, rather than a lane.
