Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation, in collaboration with TD, invites you to join us for an inspirational and informative panel discussion on Women and Philanthropy. 

Monday, April 8, 2019, 5:30 P.M. – 8:00 P.M.

Brookstreet Hotel – Newbridge 1 Room, 525 Legget Drive, Ottawa, ON




Women in Canada influence billions of dollars in charitable giving each year and it’s no surprise that women have a different way of donating.  As women’s influence over wealth in Canada continues to rise, their unique approach to giving needs to be better understood by charities. TD has commissioned research on Canadian women and philanthropy as part of an initiative to better understand the overall financial needs, habits and aspirations of Canadian women.

During this discussion we will share some of the findings of the TD report, conducted independently by Investor Economics, and provide reflections from the perspective of a unique group of women philanthropic leaders in our community.
