Invisible Heroines: Practical Strategies working with Women's Philanthropy 

GTA Chapter and Ottawa Chapter are pleased to co-host part two of the webinar series on Women & Philanthropy

Presented by

Candice Jay and Betty-Anne Howard

In part Two of the Women, Money and Philanthropy Series, Candice and Betty-Anne will be discussing women's wisdom in the context of wealth and estate planning. Valuable and practical tools will be shared based on our experiences in financial services along with action items to help empower women to strive for financial stability, avoid common estate planning mistakes and effective ways for women to maximize their wealth and impact while supporting their philanthropic objectives.

We look forward to welcoming our CAGP GTA and Ottawa community to this lively discussion and free event.



Candice has over 15 years of experience in the financial industry. She is focused on helping charitable foundations and high net worth clients - including women, entrepreneurs and generational families -  achieve their long-term financial goals. Strategic philanthropy is also an important part of Candice's practice and she is passionate in working with clients to identify values and areas where philanthropy can play a role.

Candice understands the importance of giving back to her community, and is a current board member of the University of Toronto Alumni Association and UHN Impact Collective of UHN Hospital Foundation. She is the Founding Member of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners (CAGP) National Advisor Council and Founding Partner in CAGP's Pan-Canadian Will Power Campaign.

In her spare time, Candice enjoys practicing yoga, playing golf and tennis, and taking hikes with her family and golden retrievers, Sadie and Maggie.



For over 23 years, Betty-Anne has been guiding individuals, couples and families to realize their financial dreams. With her specialization in strategic philanthropic planning she has been able to direct millions of dollars to the charitable sector while dramatically reducing taxes for those individuals she has assisted.

Betty-Anne is an accomplished author having published her most recent book, Making Your Dreams a Reality and has been interviewed by The Globe and Mail and Carleton University's publication, Philanthropy in Action. She is a member of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners having also been their Ottawa Education Chair, and is now the Vice Chair of the Ottawa Chapter. For two years she served as a Trustee at the Institute for Advanced Financial Education.

Growing up in poverty and fueled by her father's illiteracy in rural Ontario, Betty-Anne became committed to higher learning; becoming the first person in her family to attend university and obtain a Masters and Honours degree. Later on she developed and delivered courses at both Queen's University and St. Lawrence College. She's been honoured with numerous awards for her public speaking, and has facilitated a variety of inspirational talks to organizations such as the Ottawa Estate Planning CouncilFriends of the Earth CanadaAction Canada and the Canadian Association of Gift Planners.

Betty-Anne has been an active Board and Committee member for such organizations as Queen's University Ban Righ Foundation, the Kingston Unitarian Fellowship, the Sexual Assault Crisis Centre and the Kingston Arts Council.
