Ivanka's Donation to Charity
In order to extend the reach of those who will benefit from this book, Ivanka is donating the unpaid portion of her advance and all future royalties received from Women Who Work to the Ivanka M. Trump Charitable Fund, a donor advised fund that will make grants to organizations that empower and educate women and girls.
With the grant to the National Urban League, the organization will launch a new, nationwide Women’s Initiative as part of its signature Entrepreneurship Center Program, which currently operates at 13 locations across the country, serving thousands of women. The Women’s Initiative will be incubated at National Urban League's Baltimore Entrepreneurship Center and will focus on giving women the mentorship and tools they need to start and grow successful businesses and achieve economic self-sufficiency.
"We are delighted that Ivanka has selected the National Urban League to receive a portion of the book proceeds from Women Who Work," National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial said. "She is highlighting the critical importance of deepening mentoring and broadening access to capital and networks for women starting and growing their businesses."
The grant to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America will go toward the organization’s national Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program for girls and underrepresented youth. Women make up half of the total U.S. college-educated workforce, but less than one-third of the STEM workforce. The Boys & Girls Clubs' STEM program and STEM Centers for Innovation are helping produce a generation of STEM-ready youth who are equipped to fill the jobs of the future, become our next generation of innovators and solve our nation's most critical challenges.
"The donation to Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s STEM programs recognizes the importance of innovation and creativity, empowering girls and underrepresented youth to develop real-world solutions," said Jim Clark, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. "We are very grateful for the support from Ivanka's new book, Women Who Work. STEM and other educational programs at more than 4,300 Boys & Girls Clubs around the country and on military installations abroad, equip young people with the skills needed for 21st century jobs and leadership roles, which are critical to the future success of America."
