    Tuesday’s presentation of In Abundance: An Analysis of the Thriving Landscape of Collective Giving in the United States by Philanthropy Together was more evidence of the impact each Philanos Affiliate is making. We have strength in numbers! We are grateful for the participation of so many of our circles. Our May 14 webinar will include a presentation specifically tailored to Philanos Affiliates.

    Our May webinar will also feature our new board and leaders for 2024-2025 and some important growth Philanos is working on in the South Central and Mountain West regions of the United States. Be sure and register using the link below.

    All Philanos affiliates are encouraged to invite your full memberships to join us at our upcoming webinars and affinity group meetings - every giving circle member is able to join in the learning, sharing, and connecting that Philanos offers.

    And, Philanos is about to begin building a new strategic plan, reflecting the diversity and needs of our circles and the future of collective giving. We cannot wait to share it with you in a few months.

    We are Stronger and Bolder Together!

    By Heather Juaregui, Past President

    Our Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation delegation made the most of three days of networking, learning, and best practice sharing at the Philanos PowerUP! Conference the first weekend of November in Baltimore. Nicole Patterson, Susan Smith, Suzanne Groff Lierz, and Heather Jauregui were among the 325 conference participants from 60 giving circles and networks, including several of our friends from the Wood River Women’s Foundation. Four tracks offered 20 breakout sessions focused on Collective Power + Leadership; Communications + Technology; Governance + Finance; and Membership + Grantmaking. Sessions were presented by members of women’s giving circles and philanthropic leaders from across the country.  Peer-to-peer discussions illuminated IWCF as a mature giving circle on solid footing, and we’re addressing common challenges, such as supporting a large vibrant membership, enhancing relationships with our grant partners, and adopting trust-based philanthropy principles. Checkout the PowerUp! Conference Wrap

    Every IWCF member is a member of Philanos–just use the same email account associated with your IWCF membership to access all the benefits for Philanos membership. You have access to the discussion groups, webinars, and resources Philanos offers to support women’s giving circles and their individual members to become educated philanthropists and thoughtful grantmakers in their communities.  Make the most of your IWCF membership by participating in one of the free Philanos webinars this year and meet other women as excited about collective giving as you are!

    March is Women’s History Month, a month to pause and reflect on the vital roles that women have played in our history, culture and society. The National Women’s History Alliance has chosen the 2024 theme to celebrate “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.”  This theme recognizes women who understand the need to eliminate bias and discrimination from individuals’ lives and institutions.

    Philanos believes that organizations that prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) create environments that respect and value individual differences. Inclusive organizations foster cultures that minimize bias and make decisions better able to address systemic inequities. We are committed to equity, diversity, collaboration, inclusiveness, transparency, and accountability.

    As part of our commitment to these values, Philanos continues our work funded by a Fidelity Charitable Catalyst grant to help lift up BIPOC-led nonprofits and the work of giving circle leaders in the Mountain West and mid-South.  We will be co-hosting an event in Denver on April 11, with our partner, Philanthropy Together, to bring together Denver area circle leaders, funders, foundation staff, DAF holders, and BIPOC nonprofit leaders for networking and collaborative learning. 

    In keeping with the theme of celebrating women who advocate for equity, diversity and inclusion, our 2023 Willoughby Award recipient, Malynda Hawes Madzel, Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County, Maryland is a wonderful example. This award honors a visionary philanthropic leader who is using their collective giving experience in new and innovative ways to support their local community. “Receiving the 2023 Willoughby Award, as recognition of my lifelong commitment to a collective giving goal to include as many women of color as possible, was the thrill of a lifetime. I look forward to carrying forth this important mission and foundation of impactful women’s philanthropy.”
