About the Speakers


Anne Hoyt Taff ~ Her work builds community capacity and strengthens local philanthropic initiatives that address a wide range of issues facing Minnesota.

Sondra Shaw-Hardy, of the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, has summarized our unique approach to philanthropy with “The 6 c’s”:

According to her research, as women, we are motivated to:

  • Create new solutions to problems
  • Change things for the better
  • Commit to organizations whose vision we share
  • Connect with the people we serve
  • Collaborate with others
  • Celebrate  and enjoy the deeper meaning of our philanthropy¹

Driven by our empathy, motivated by the 6cs, we are a force for good.
