TORONTO, April 23, 2015—Women Moving Millions is one of the most powerful philanthropic forces operating today. The non-profit organization has raised the bar on women’s giving, inspiring a select group of women to make unprecedented individual gifts of $1 million or more to support the advancement of women globally. Vancouver-born and New York-based Jessica Houssian of Women Moving Millions will share the success of this massive philanthropic effort at the Deloitte Women of Influence Luncheon Series in Toronto on April 29, 2015.

During the luncheon, Houssian will reveal key insights regarding the success of the massive philanthropic efforts, including but not limited to: the formula for success that has propelled Women Moving Millions; a first-hand examination of the attitudes and recognized catalysts for charitable giving in 2015; the impact of these philanthropic donations; and how other organizations can tap in to the proven donor model.

Four of Canada’s leading not-for-profit organizations who share a similar goal of empowering women and girls will be lending their support to the event. UNICEF Canada, World Vision, The Match International Women’s Fund, and G(irls) 20 (Women of Influence’s charity of choice), are among those demonstrating their willingness to adapt to the evolving needs of donor communities.
