Keynote speaker: Kathy LeMay
Kathy LeMay is the founder, president and CEO of Raising Change, which helps philanthropic individuals create Generosity Plans to help change the world. She has has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows including "Oxygen TV" and the "Oprah Winfrey Show."
LeMay began her global activism in war-torn Yugoslavia where she worked with women survivors of the siege and genocide camps. She has now been a social change fundraiser for fifteen years, raising more than $150 million dollars in the fields of women's human rights, hunger and poverty relief, HIV/AIDS and movement building.
Contributing time or money to causes far removed from the immediacy of our individual lives may feel overwhelming, especially in times of financial stress and uncertainty. LeMay and her book The Generosity Plan break through these initial roadblocks to give easy and valuable tools to spur definite and rewarding action, demonstrating how our time, treasure and talents can make a world of difference. By building and acting on a generosity plan, each one of us can create change simply by doing what we can, where we are, with what we have.
