Congratulations to NCG members Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors President and CEO Melissa Berman, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation President and CEO Carol Larson, and Silicon Valley Community Foundation Vice President of Corporate Responsibility Maeve Miccio who were included on Fundraising Success' list of Top 20 Women in Philanthropy, Social Innovation & Civic Engagement.
Although they are highly visible and have built national (even international) platforms, these women were selected for their philanthropic impact through the art of collaboration and their ability to facilitate, to the highest degree, the free flow of information and innovation across sector networks to advance social change.
In addition, these women are not only thought leaders, they are love leaders with compassion for the people they serve. Philanthropy without love has zero social impact. Money and endowment assets have nothing to do with our list. It is all about social impact, advancing the overall philanthropic sector (not just your own organization) with strategy and thought-leadership.
