For more than a decade Ivanka Trump was a woman who worked for her father and for her own eponymous brand, a stature that landed her a second book, titled, bluntly, Women Who Work.

Ivanka Trump is establishing a fund to donate proceeds from her upcoming book to charity, with the first grants going to the National Urban League and Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

"Out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book, I will not publicize the book through a promotional tour or media appearances", Trump said in a statement posted on her Facebook page.

Trump signed a deal to publish "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success", about a year before her father, Donald TrumpDonald TrumpWhy Dr. David Shulkin is exactly what the VA ordered.

In the first round of grants, the charities will each receive $100,000.

"It is my honest 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.

The Nats celebrated, and the Braves walked off the field, and the MASN broadcast went to commercial before the postgame show. But Washington has dominated its division rival the last two-plus season, improving to 37-13 in their last 50 meetings.


The White House said Ivanka planned to give up some income, minimize certain assets, and promised she will recuse herself from policy matters that may pose conflict of interest concerns. As she prepares for her first official trip overseas to Berlin next week, at the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and settles into her new job in her father's administration, Ivanka is moving beyond the family's earlier ethical missteps, which they dismissed as the result of their adjusting to Washington's political realities.

The fund will receive a minimum of $425,000, which is the unpaid portion of Trump's advance minus expenses. Any future royalties Ivanka is owed on the book will also be donated. In the introduction, Trump writes that she wants to "change the narrative around women and work" and "provide solutions that educate and empower women to be their best selves, both personally and professionally".

It not yet clear where the rest of her book's proceeds will be donated.

Ivanka Trump's first book, The Trump Card: Playing To Win In Work And Life, made it on to The New York Times bestsellers list.

The president's daughter has an office in the White House and an official role in her father's administration.
