Publisher's Description

Women are entrepreneurs, highly paid professionals, and leaders in business. Many of us have skills to give. We are marrying later. Many of us have time to give. Women are also likely to manage the family money for a significant portion of their lives. Many of us have money to give. When Kim King, a former corporate lawyer, began her own giving journey she found herself short on resources that would guide her along the way. She faced many questions:
  • How much do I give?
  • How do I find good organizations that are efficient and effective?
  • What are some of the common methods of giving?
  • How do I find others to join me on this journey?
Most of all, she was eager to root all of her decisions in a biblical framework. When Women Give is filled with practical advice and stories to foster growth in giving at any and every level. Kim shares openly from her own story, both from her perspective as a donor and from serving on the boards of several Christian nonprofits. If you want to be a wise steward of what you've been given, then this book is for you.

Editorial Reviews

While other writings about philanthropy lay out reasons to give, this book takes an unflinching look at the underlying excuses that we so often make for not giving. The stories in When Women Give fundamentally challenge the ways that we stifle our generosity. Ultimately, When Women Give serves as a call to move beyond our fears—that we don’t have enough, that our giving can’t make a difference, that by serving others we'll damage ourselves—in order to embark on the great adventure of a generous life.
" When Women Give clarifies the impact of my role as a professional and paints an very clear picture of the impact of my financial contributions—a picture I could only see before in black and white. The final chapter pierced my heart, leaving it as fertile soil ready to receive God's best, to give my firstfruits and storm my office Monday morning with reckless abandon. I will conquer my market share and live the great adventure! What if women really grabbed ahold of this concept? Imagine the advancement of God's kingdom here on earth."
"I was captivated by the stories shared in Kim King's book. As I work with women in the workplace, I'm surprised at the lack of understanding of financial tools available to enable giving in a much bigger way than most imagine. Not only does Kim provide 'giving' guidance, but she shares stories where God truly takes hearts and opens them to never-thought-about possibilities regarding generosity."
