First Daughter Ivanka Trump recently passed on a tour for her new self-help book due to ethics concerns over her role in her father’s administration, but the entrepreneur announced that proceeds from the book would go to charity.
Trump revealed in a Facebook post on April 20 the establishment of the Ivanka M. Trump Charitable Fund, which will receive the unpaid portion of her advance and future royalties received from the book, titled Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success.
“With my grant to the National Urban League, the organization will launch a new Women’s Initiative as part of its signature Entrepreneurship Center Program, which currently operates at 13 locations across the country,” Trump shared on Facebook.
“The Women’s Initiative will focus on giving women the mentorship and tools they need to start and grow successful businesses and achieve economic self-sufficiency,” she added.
Trump went on to share her plan for assisting in the STEM program and STEM Centers for Innovation within the Boys & Girls Club, with an aim to help females interested in careers in those that field.
“The grant to 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,” she wrote.
Trump who recently made headlines while on a women empowerment tour in Germany, made it clear in the post that her book was a “personal project” and “completed before the election in November.” She closed her post by reiterating the pride in her book and her desire to see it help others.
“It is my sincere hope that Women Who Work serves as a powerful resource and that the book proceeds further benefit women and girls through the great work of the National Urban League and Boys & Girls Clubs of America,” she wrote.
