'Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life By What You Give", is a practical guide to modern giving that redefines philanthropy for today’s era. Far more than making monetary donations, philanthropy encompasses giving time and knowledge, resources that can be just as valuable as financial contributions. Whether you’re a new philanthropist, a member of a charity’s Board of Directors, or just getting started as a volunteer, Successful Philanthropy offers the practical guidance and inspiring perspective that empowers all of us to take part in building a better world.



Successful Philanthropy removes the guesswork and helps you shape your own personal path, providing much-needed insight and guidance into making philanthropy a lasting part of your life. A comprehensive guide, Successful Philanthropy provides details on all aspects of philanthropy, including what most boards look for in a candidate and, for those who are thinking of starting a charity, specific information on what anyone ought to know before venturing in that direction. Successful Philanthropy discusses the importance of teaching the next generation the value of giving in schools and at home to improve our community, our country, and our world.



Giving back to those in need is among the most rewarding and self-fulfilling parts of being human. Successful Philanthropy invites you to explore the many ways that you can find fulfillment through a lifetime of philanthropic giving.
