Report: Christian women give 300% more than the average American
Women Doing Well announced the findings of a new survey among Christian women that measured key generosity motivations and barriers. In the nationwide study, over 7,300 women shared their opinions about why they give and why they don’t.
According to the survey, "Women own it, marry it, inherit it, earn it, save it, and spend it. As much as 90 cents on every dollar will pass through the hands of women. She inherits the family wealth: An estimated 70% of $41 trillion in wealth transfer will go to daughters. She receives the marital assets: The average age of a widow is 57. And she’s growing in personal earning capacity: 70% of women work outside the home, one in eleven working age women is an entrepreneur, and the majority of degrees are earned by women. Women are increasingly becoming the richer gender. As they grow in wealth, will they grow in generosity? Will this herald a new era in charitable giving?"
Key findings from the survey:
Surprising Finding: Only about 1 in 3 (37%) women indicated that their church was very helpful in growing their financial generosity
Women Doing Well exists to inspire a movement of women living and giving generously. As women learn and grow together using principles of strategic giving aligning with their personal calling, tremendous economic, intellectual, and spiritual strength will be released for good through the family, to the community, and extending outwards into the world.
