A friend of mine Patty Dedominic wrote a book called Life Moments for Women, along with author Maureen Ford, and all the proceeds benefit the California Women’s Foundation and they make wonderful gifts for women of all ages.
Since mentoring women of all ages through the Committee of 200 Foundation is one of my passions, as well as my own scholarships through Pepperdine University Presidential Key Executive MBA Program I am happy to refer people to others who do good. Remember this is part of what I do on Philanthropy Fridays! Send me your Philanthropy and I will research it and feature it if it meets my standards – which are:
1. Do good without a political agenda
2. Unusual charities that may not be well known to others
3. Credible, highest ethical standards, with a public website that I and others can visit and evaluate
The Committee of 200 Foundation serves these purposes. Below are some of the young business women who have received scholarships from C200 Foundation to help them on their ways in both the corporate world, and entrepreneurship. They are outstanding examples of what philanthropy can do when focused on talented, hardworking, ambitious people.
C200 Scholars 2011 – I am in the middle – surrounded by youth and talent – such joy!
