Giving Tuesday: Helping Women Entrepreneurs Who Create Nonprofits

December 3, 2013

Business advice for women entrepreneurs and small business owners


“It is better to give, than receive” proclaims a popular quote. I’ve always found that sentiment to be true. Now a new avenue to encourage charitable giving and highlighting worthy causes is being celebrated today, December 3, 2013. The movement was launched by the New York’s 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation a number of years ago.

The world might expect women entrepreneurs to only own profit companies but a handful in Women TIES have created non-for-profit organizations as their entrepreneurial endeavor. Some have created them out of the loss of a loved one, after a breast cancer diagnosis or due to a need in the community. Many of these women work diligently to raise funds and awareness for their causes year round while taking very little compensation for their time. They give from their heart and bless the lives of others in the process.

Today, I hope you learn more about Giving Tuesday and learn more about the women entrepreneurs in our network who created or run a non-for-profit organization that could use your donation today.

Women TIES is proud to have the following nonprofit organizations affiliated with us:

Maureen’s Hope Foundation

Father Champlin’s Guardian Angel Society

Opheila’s Place

Girl Scouts of NYPenn Pathways

Alzheimer’s Association, Central New York Chapter

Burnt Hill Montessori School

Positively Pink Packages


a company started by Karen McMahon called where you can shop at hundreds of your favorite national online stores through places like Amazon, Ebay, Target, Best Buy, Staples, etc. and at no extra cost, have a percentage of your purchase donated back to your favorite museum or related organization.

Giving from your heart and wallet to a worthy non-for profit organization is just one way to give yourself one of the best holiday gifts of all. Live generously.
