|Linda Descano, president of Women & Co.|
The Women & Co. website is a superb resource for women to learn more about family and money, life stages & planning, estate and legacy, credit, financing education, insurance & long term care, real estate, retirement, taxes and of course, philanthropy. Everything you need to know is all right there and easy to maneuver around and work with.
Linda Descano is the president of Women & Co. and I interviewed her for our new book, Women and Philanthropy: Boldly Shaping a Better World. In the book she says that women are self-identifying themselves as Chief Financial Officers of their families and as positive role models. She says, "They have taken on a much broader role and are shaping their families financial values: one of those is giving back. They are looking at how to align their investments with their philanthropy. How to be more strategic philanthropists and get their kids involved."
If you haven't already looked at Women & Co's. website, I urge you to do so. It's chock full of great information and stories about women and philanthropy as well as very readable and interesting financial advice.
