Robert I. Evans, the Founder and Managing Director of the Philadelphia fundraising firm The EHL Consulting Group, was recently featured in the New York Times within their special Giving Section, a segment of the paper that examines trends in philanthropy, timely issues for donors, and nonprofit business practices.
Written by Fran Hawthorne, the article appeared on Friday, November 9th, 2012 in print and online and is entitled, “In Pursuit of the Female Philanthropists.” Read the online version here: http://nyti.ms/ZeWGQk
“[Female philanthropists] get into discussions about the importance of certain programs and the salaries of agency personnel,” Evans is quoted as saying.
Hawthorne's article detailed an emerging trend that EHL Consulting has analyzed since February: women are emerging as the new major donors for many nonprofits. Studies show that female philanthropists are routinely more generous than their male counterparts, plus they are motivated by impact and results.
Evans noted that women tend to ask more "piercing questions" during donor meetings.
