Virtual Event

In honor of Women's History Month, the FIU Foundation's Office of Inclusive Philanthropy, in collaboration with CasaCuba and the FIU Alumni Association, is pleased to present a virtual roundtable entitled, "The Power of Women in Philanthropy."

Women have the means and motivation to change philanthropy; they control more than half of private wealth in the United States. This discussion will provide a glimpse into the world of women and philanthropy – including creating a legacy of giving, approaches to giving and our role as a Foundation in connecting with women philanthropists.
