She Who Inspires

She Who Inspires: Philanthropic Women Changing the World from San Diego

UC San Diego's Office of Gift Planning, together with partners across campus and across the region, have released She Who Inspires, a book featuring local San Diego women who contribute—in various ways—to enriching our community. Each of them gives part of themselves: they share their resources, collaborate with others, and spread kindness. And as this book demonstrates, their giving—when taken together—has an impact much greater than what any one person could give alone.
