Cathy Raphael @ Bolder Giving

Cathy’s giving journey has been defined by gender and power. Translating messages of male leadership from her mother’s family with her personal awakening and commitment to feminism led her to focus on supporting women and girls as a critical path toward rebalancing the world.

She broke through the isolation and barriers that often exist between and among donors and activists through her engagement with some of the country’s most innovative philanthropic groups including the Ms. Foundation, Funding Exchange, and Women Donors Network and helped found the Women and Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania. Finding community with other donors and activists, working together to shift the world to be more loving and peaceful – that is where Cathy has found the joy that drives her giving.

Jazi is proud to partner with Bolder Giving to help spotlight an admired giver each month and offer the opportunity to dialogue with the featured giver. Join the free teleconferences live or listen to recordings of past calls.
