Internationally recognized, Tracy Gary is known for her decades of work in the field of activist philanthropy. Her unique strategy is threefold: she advises donors in aligning their giving with their deepest values, works with non-profit leadership in their fundraising proficiency, and builds networks across communities. Her effectiveness in galvanizing change that addresses global needs arises from her core organizing principle: that the way we create a better world is by inviting all to the table.

As a field innovator and nonprofit entrepreneur, she has founded or co-founded 23 nonprofits including Inspired Legacies, the Women Donors Network, Resourceful Women, Women Moving Millions, Engaged Donors for Global Equity (EDGE Funders), and the Tipping Point Network. She has been a member of Advisors in Philanthropy and has worked with hundreds of family and investment advisors.


Tracy is a speaker, consultant and workshop leader, offering her services through Wholehearted Generosity, her private consultancy practice. She has worked in all 50 states and 23 countries. Her book, Inspired Philanthropy: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Giving Plan and Leaving a Legacy, is in its 3 printing and has sold over 44,000 copies.


Philanthropy. . .more than just giving.
