Embargo Lift Date
The 2011 Study of High Net Worth Women’s Philanthropy is the fourth in the series of Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s research reports that offer new insights into the philanthropic attitudes and behaviors of wealthy donors. Conducted by the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University for Bank of America Merrill Lynch, this year’s research follows an initial landmark study published through this partnership in 2006, with subsequent studies conducted in 2008 and 2010. The new 2011 study focuses on the motivations and behaviors of high net worth women and increases the understanding of the influence of women’s philanthropic networks in creating informed and engaged donors and volunteers.
