    Gender has always been important to me. I grew up in the 50’s and experienced gender inequality in my everyday life. Too many people believe women’s issues no longer need support. While nothing could be further from the truth, this translated into a major funding crisis for organizations that work to empower women and girls.

    We can’t just sit back and wait for change to happen. Women must step into our donor leadership and call on others to join us.

    My gift:
    In 1993, I made my first gift to establish Mayan, a feminist organization to act as a catalyst for change for women in the Jewish community. That gift unleashed the power of my philanthropy.

    As a life coach and career counselor, I worked with women about their relationships with money. Maybe, I thought, some of my concerns about money were ones that were holding others back, and by taking a public stand on my philanthropy, I could encourage others to do the same.

    By announcing my gift, I was able to have a larger impact. While it meant breaking family taboo, it allowed me to step into my own power in ways I didn’t expect.

    My gift:
    I made my BIG + BOLD pledge to the Women’s Fund of Central Ohio. Its mission is to transform the lives of women and girls by mobilizing the collective power and passion of all women working together.

    Anonymous financial support enabled me to have a transformational education at Smith College. I’ve always wanted to thank those donors in person and learn what motivated them to support women from India, but I understood their decision to give anonymously.

    When I joined Women Moving Millions, I saw the value of activating my voice and influence for the issues I am passionate about. You can’t inspire others by being quiet.

    My gift:
    In 2010, I made my BIG + BOLD pledge in support of educating women to be leaders. Part of that gift went to Apne Aap whose mission is to increase choices for at-risk girls and women in order to ensure access to their rights.

    If someone asked me five years ago what it meant to give with a gender lens, I would have assumed it meant giving only to “women’s issues.” I used to focus my work and my giving more traditionally, more broadly. I wanted to help everyone. I’ve since come to understand that every issue is a women’s issue.

    If we want to have an impact in health, education and poverty alleviation, we must integrate women and girls.

    My gift:
    In 1998 I founded the Mary A. Tidlund Charitable Foundation. My BIG + BOLD gift came from my community and went to funding our organization’s work globally in health education and the alleviation of poverty.

    My childhood was challenging, but amazing people touched my life. I was transformed from a fearful girl with no self-esteem into a determined and passionate woman who changed the course of her life.

    I have never considered myself wealthy. I didn’t really understand my own capacity to make a BIG + bold gift. I made a gift that is financially challenging for me because the need is so great. Now is the time to create lasting change.

    My gift:
    I made my BIG + BOLD gift to the Global Fund for Women. Its mission is to advance the rights of women and girls worldwide by increasing resources for and investing in women-led organizations and women’s collective leadership for change.

    My eyes and heart were opened to the issues of sex trafficking almost eight years ago when I saw a documentary about children who were forced into sex slavery in Cambodia. I was horrified and I knew I couldn’t live in a world in which this was taking place without doing something about it.

    I knew I wanted to work on the issue of child sex trafficking, but I wanted to figure out what specifically I could do to aid and reinforce this important movement.

    My gift:
    I made my BIG + BOLD gift to Thorn when I co-founded the organization in 2009 and have since supported the work.


The case for gender equality is a matter of common sense. The more we invest in women and girls, the more they invest back into their
families and communities, propelling social and economic advancement. See more proof.

I'm going ALL IN FOR HER because:

A government-driven delegation of UK investors and developers are looking to visit the Middle East to strike deals with Middle Eastern investors. Taking the BREXIT decision into consideration this is fantastic news for the UK: it is noticeable at just how much these investors really do invest into the UK. All of those involved will be attending two set-piece events that are aimed to influence investment and trading connections between the regions. Between the Middle East and the UK, the international investment levels are high: it topped AED 15.1 billion in 2016, so this is something that the UK real estate market just can’t let go of. Usually, Middle Eastern investors are pulled towards residential property in London. The AED 18.4 billion top up this month of an AED 229.5 billion real estate and infrastructure investment plans for the UK – owned by the Qatari government – demonstrates the level of attention the UK is receiving from Middle Eastern investors. Former deputy mayor of London and now Chairman of the government’s Homes and Communities Agency, Sir Edward Lister, leads the delegation and said: "The Emirates have always been strong investors in the UK, not just in London, but throughout the country and we have always welcomed that investment. "In spite of Brexit, the lying property dynamics in the UK remain unchanged. The demand for all types of property is absolutely enormous. "The UK government target for housing is 250,000 homes a year, and in a good year we are only achieving 170,000 so the pressure is on for housing across the country and we need with that modern office accommodation as well as industrial and distribution warehousing. "In a country where property is so well protected by rule of law, the UK always makes a sound investment." Sir Edward has emphasised just how much he is looking ahead to speak to experts from the Middle East so that he can understand how innovation is being implemented. This counts especially for the methods of the next generation – in relation to construction –, which could be of a great benefit to the UK. The relationship between the Middle East and the UK is a strong one. It goes as far back as two centuries ago and this is reflected in the rising trade figures that continue to improve. Trade between the UK and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has boomed too – by 185% between 1999 and 2015 – and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has emerged as the UK’s third biggest export partner outside the circle of Europe. Not only that but they are the 11th largest trading partner for the UK as a whole, which shows their significant relationship and just how meaningful it is. Now that BREXIT has occurred, the relationship on an international scale is only set to improve even more. Head of Research at Cluttons, Faisal Durrani, said: "We already know that London residential property is a favourite asset class among the region’s wealthy, as has been reflected in our Middle East Private Capital Surveys for a number of years. "London’s nickname as the ‘eighth emirate’ is further substantiated by the tremendous volume of investment it attracts from the Middle East and the GCC states in particular. "As well as Qatar’s multi-billion-dirham investment into the UK, Kamco of Kuwait and Rasmala of Dubai recently completed an AED 248 million deal to acquire an Amazon distribution warehouse near Edinburgh that is responsible for 3 of 8 Amazon parcel deliveries in the UK. "And Abu Dhabi Investments acquired an AED 1.4 billion share of a shopping mall in Liverpool recently." All of this evidence truly highlights the success rate between UK real estate and Middle Eastern investors. It is strong and wealthy and only good things can be expected this year for investments into the UK housing market. And the good thing is…BREXIT will not even affect this.
