Breakfast, Networking & Educational Series - November 15, 2018 

7:30am - 10:30am The Hope Club, 6 Benevolent Street Providence 

Program: "Women in Philanthropy: They Have the Wealth.  Do You Have the Tools to Reach Them?"

Presented by: Claudine A. Donikian, JD, MBA, President & CEO of Pentera, Inc.

The unequivocal truth is that women are changing the face of philanthropy. More and more philanthropic decisions are being made by women, who now control more than half the wealth in the United States—with that percentage projected to rise dramatically over the next several decades. At the same time, exciting new research shows that women are more philanthropic than men and that women donors think and act differently than their male counterparts.

The session will:

  • Explain the reasons for the historic wealth transfer to women.
  • Document the generosity of women.
  • Analyze how women philanthropists think differently, including key ways that women donors are different from men.
  • Present strategies for working with women donors.


Claudine A. Donikian, JD, MBA, is the president/CEO and chief marketing officer of Pentera, Inc., and is regarded as one of the foremost experts in planned giving marketing. She is a sought-after speaker on the national planned giving and AFP circuits and writes and conducts training modules for Pentera training seminars. As Pentera's chief marketing officer, she is the editor-in-chief for client marketing content and personally consults with a select group of Pentera's clients on their marketing strategy and execution. One of Claudine's professional areas of expertise is women in philanthropy, and she serves as a member of the advisory board for the prestigious Women's Philanthropy Institute at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and as a member of the board of directors of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (CGP).
