The World Can't Wait For More Meaningful Giving--Giving That Brings Impact AND Joy
WHATEVER THE SCALE OF RESOURCES YOU HAVE TO GIVE AWAY, THE PATH TO IMPACT AND JOY THROUGH PHILANTHROPY MAY NOT BE AS OBVIOUS AS YOU THINK
When it comes to gearing up your giving, the knowledge, skills, and mindsets that have served you so well in other areas of your life don’t always produce the results you expect. This is why so many people give up on giving before they really even get started. But what if all you need to do is make subtle yet profound shifts in your thinking and approach? Don’t leave your money on the sidelines in a world awash with compelling needs, where philanthropy still has a vital role. No matter where you are in your journey to translate money into meaning, get ready to learn and grow in pursuit of more joy and more impact in your giving.
In Money with Meaning: How to Create Joy and Impact through Philanthropy, Alex Johnston empowers you to maximize your impact and your joy as a donor.
Through four key concepts--Getting Visionary, Getting Real, Getting Together and Getting Better--Alex offers a guide to “meaningful giving,” where donor satisfaction and social impact meet.
From insights on your personal development as a donor and understanding the true impact of your giving to practical advice on hiring help and designing philanthropic legal structures, Money with Meaning is a necessary guide for any philanthropist who wants to change the world for real.
