Donna Wilhelm

A LIFE OF MY OWN is an evocative, immersive memoir that charts the personal evolution of an American philanthropic thought leader and arts advocate ... who happens to be Dallas' own Donna Wilhelm. A LIFE OF MY OWN follows her journey from girlhood to the woman she would become, telling of her upbringing, diverse work history, family challenges and personal growth with unbridled honesty and narrative energy. When life on the outside seemed under control, her inner life was in turmoil. A search for self-realization explores lies and deception about her origins, and a quest for truth and understanding that ultimately shapes a woman with profound purpose and mission. Donna Wilhelm’s memoir will inspire future generations to take ownership of their own choices and life stories as the reader travels with her on a journey as universal as it is empowering.

Donna Wilhelm is a philanthropist and arts advocate in Dallas, Texas. Following the 9/11 attacks, Wilhelm became one of 14 philanthropists to form The Pluralism Fund, dedicated to building the capacity of women and girls in Iran and Pakistan. She holds many board and advisory capacities with Dallas area non-profits, including KERA North Texas Public Broadcasting and the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth. She graduated from The City University of New York with a degree in Art History and Studio Art, and did postgraduate work in jewelry design at New York’s Parsons School of Design.
