From the Back Cover:

Praise for Women, Wealth & Giving

"In Women, Wealth, and Giving, Damen and McCuistion document the tremendous influence and power boomer women exert today in philanthropy. Their interviews and stories reinforce current research at the Center on Philanthropy and among researchers around the country that boomer women have the potential to change the world."
—Debra J. Mesch, PhD, Director, Women's PhilanthropyInstitute, Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University

"The book we've all been waiting for—the untold story of boomer women changing the world and themselves through philanthropic expression. This book is both an inspiration to boomer women and a wonderful acknowledgement of the transformational role they have served in both the growth and diversity of philanthropy today."
—Ellen Remmer, President/CEO, The Philanthropic Initiative, Inc.

"This book, written to and for women, offers a path to that golden intersection where informed ideas, feelings, and actions come together as a deeper way of life. Damen and McCuistion provide so many insights about the inner meaning of finances and philanthropy that I encourage both women and men to imbibe their nourishment for the soul."
—Paul G. Schervish, PhD, Director, Center on Wealth and Philanthropy; Professor, Department of Sociology, Boston College

"Every woman donor and every development officer who wants to raise funds from women should read THIS book. It is a superb exploration and extrapolation of readings, interviews, and perspectives about how women think, feel, and give. The book offers a window into the realities of why women need to express their philanthropic voices and values. The development profession's body of knowledge will be greatly enhanced because the authors have integrated historical, sociological, economic, and psychological influences—demonstrating that women are, indeed, a high-impact constituency in the world of philanthropy."
—Karla Williams, MA, ACFRE, author, Donor Focused Strategies for Annual Giving, Lead Faculty, Fund Raising School at IUPUI, Center on Philanthropy

"Women, Wealth, and Giving will release a wave that has the potential to dramatically impact charitable giving. While others have written books on financial planning and philanthropy, Damen and McCuistion combine insightful and candid interviews with valuable 'how to' information. Women boomers are encouraged to explore what motivates their charitable urges and are given a road map to create and build their legacy—a better world."
—James N. Falk, President, World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth; President, Association of Fundraising Professionals, Dallas Chapter

From the Inside Flap:

Women, Wealth & Giving

The Virtuous Legacy of the Boom Generation

In only a short half-century, women have taken their places as creative forces for shifting the constructs of families and communities and are shaping the world they want. This new wave, the women effect, is about the extraordinary willingness of women to be open in the face of great loss, grief, hope, and fear, and to transcend personal difficulties and anxiety to serve their communities and make change happen. But these stories aren't just about "them"; they are about you as well.

Challenging you to create a lasting legacy and take a great leap forward for the love of humankind, Women, Wealth, and Giving draws from the combined experiences of Margaret May Damen's career as a Certified Financial Planner®, investment advisor, and endowment gift planning design specialist and that of Niki Nicastro McCuistion's as a nonprofit founder, CEO, and consultant.

Written both for boom-generation women—born between 1943–1964—who want to create a formalized and strategic giving plan, as well as for fundraisers and development officers who need to better understand the giving culture of women boomers, Women, Wealth, and Giving will inspire you to impactful, intentional action resulting in personal and community change.

If you want to make a difference by leaving a legacy of hope, love, and compassion for future generations, you have a common destiny with forty-three million of the wealthiest, healthiest, and best-educated women to hit midlife. This uplifting book shares the stories of some of these wise women and how they have found fulfillment through giving. Their stories serve as a call to action of how you also can enrich your life when you give of yourself and your spirit, of your time and your blessings.

Women, Wealth, and Giving invites you to open a window in your heart, to kindle a flame, and to light your spirit with a passion for living a purposeful life. There is no better time to become a torchbearer for compassionate change and light the way for others to follow.
