Her latest gift and project is a the Joy Picus Child Development Center in downtown Los Angeles. Because of our respect, admiration and love for this woman, Joy is prominently mentioned in our new book, Women and Philanthropy, as a philanthropist, leader in raising funds for Jewish causes, and a supporter of political candidates.
When Joy emailed me that she had been asked by the Women's Foundation of California to write on its blog, I was delighted. Her stories under the title, “Women are Changing Philanthropy," are priceless as to how she became a philanthropist (working with Martha Taylor) and how she managed with the “old boys” as part of the Women's Philanthropy Council at the University of Wisconsin Foundation.
Kudos Joy. We look forward to many more of your writings and wisdom.
