Business Women Give More - Survey
Monday, 5th February 2001 at 12:02 pm

A survey of US business women has found that the top level entrepreneurs give more money and time to charity than men.

The “Leaders in Business and Community” study found that half of all women entrepreneurs worth $1m or more donate annual gifts in excess of $10,000 to charities and seek out leadership roles.

The survey was carried out by the National Foundation of Business Owners and the results are based on an survey of 226 female and 235 male business owners in the US.

The survey also found that business owners give most often to religious organisations, community service and youth groups. About 40 percent of business owners have set up volunteer coordination programs for their employees and that 89 percent of women said they need to feel compassion towards the cause or organisation that they donate their time and money.
