Jean Shafiroff



NEW YORK, NY – On the heels of her animal rescue mission in Nicaragua, Celebrity Philanthropist and Author Jean Shafiroff, hosted a special talk for her new book Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life by What You Give, at Barnes & Noble in New York City. Jean shared with the audience how to get started in charitable work, without writing a big check. Using examples from her own life, Jean provided a roadmap on giving back by explaining that everyone has something to give, no matter how small. Attendees listened intently as Shafiroff revealed her own path, and shared details from her latest charitable effort to help abused and abandoned animals in Nicaragua.



“More often than not, people want to give back to those in need but don’t know where exactly to start,” said Jean Shafiroff. “I’ve created a guidebook that lays out the tools they need to begin the most fulfilling job anyone can do, which is to help the less fortunate. At my book signing, I was able to connect with my guests and delve into the need to know information that I’ve learned in my philanthropic work.”



SE Advisors CEO and US Campaign Director for the Margaret Thatcher Scholarship Trust at Oxford University Scott Elkins, wrote the forward to the Jean’s book and was on hand to lead the Q&A. Georgina Bloomberg, who was not at the event, wrote the introduction to Successful Philanthropy.



Jean’s message at the talk and in the book is simple. She is encouraging everyone get involved in giving back, and showing that it doesn’t take much. A big question of the night was about starting a charity. Jean Shafiroff who chairs seven charities, reveled the enormous undertaking involved. With over one million charities in the U.S. and many overlapping efforts, Jean expressed a need for consolidation.



Following the discussion, eager guests lined up to have Shafiroff sign copies her new book.



Successful Philanthropy is a practical guide to modern giving that redefines philanthropy for today’s era. Far more than making monetary donations, philanthropy today 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.

At the event, guests enjoyed a light breakfast before given the chance to learn more about Shafiroff’s book. Congresswoman Maloney opened by welcoming the guests and congratulating Jean Shafiroff on her book and her continuous work as one of the most important philanthropists in New York, currently on the board of seven different charities. The Congresswoman went on to emphasize the important task that lies on Congress to maintain charitable deductions to encourage more people to donate money towards important causes such as the Breast Cancer Research Foundation that the Congresswoman herself supports. The Congresswoman then introduced author and philanthropist Jean Shafiroff.


Lee Fryd
Shafiroff thanked everyone for attending the event and went on to introduce her book Successful Philanthropy: How To Make a Life by What You Give and the concepts it addresses. She communicated the purpose of the book, which is a guide to finding a meaningful cause to volunteer time, knowledge and funds to, and that it was written to inspire those interested in philanthropy who may not know where to begin. A Q&A was also held where guests, among other things, wondered how Shafiroff first got introduced to the idea of philanthropy and philanthropic giving. Shafiroff explained that she has long been dedicated to helping others and that her upbringing had a major influence on her philanthropic work. In her book she mentions the importance of teaching philanthropy both at home and in schools. Jean ended the Q&A by introducing the author of her book’s foreword Scott Elkins, who is the CEO of SE Advisors and a philanthropist of 20 years.



Elkins, who attended the event with one of his daughters, addressed the room with a few words about his own involvement in charitable causes, and how he has worked with many esteemed charities such as Cambridge University and currently as the US Campaign Director for the Margaret Thatcher Scholarship Trust at Oxford University. He saluted Shafiroff for her passionate spirit in giving to others and, as Shafiroff, stressed that anyone can give.



Shafiroff’s new book Successful Philanthropy: How To Make a Life by What You Give, a practical guide offering advice for modern giving that redefines philanthropy for today’s era. Shafiroff comments that, “Describing yourself as a philanthropist may seem odd at first. For some people, being a philanthropist sounds like something limited only to those who give large financial gifts. But the truth is that philanthropy is accessible to anyone.”



Successful Philanthropy: How To Make a Life by What You Give [Hatherleigh Press/Penguin Random House] is available to order in Hardcover and E-Reader on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Indiebound [ISBN 978-1578266173]. The book is also available for purchase wherever books are sold.
