Philanthropy: Necessary But Not Enough

Since 1996, The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham has leveraged philanthropy as a powerful tool to accelerate economic opportunity for women and their families. This investment in community programs has had a deep impact for families, helping thousands overcome barriers to their goals. Yet many families still encounter complex, systemic problems that can’t be addressed by philanthropy alone.  Melanie R. Bridgeforth, President & CEO, will discuss the current challenges facing women and families in Alabama and The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham’s core strategies to address them, including the organization’s first ever policy agenda for women and upcoming State of Women research.
