Format: Hardcover
As an Executive Director of a large inner city Social Service Agency this is a great book. Most of us all agree you have to have a vision where you want to be, and how you want to get there. Mr. White clearly has a vision that all charities should strive for the highest ETHICAL and not just legal standards. His book has a lot to offer in helping us keep our minds on that job, while we also try to keep our eyes on the prize. Donor Accountability is not to be taken lightly and this book is right on target for today's post Enron Era. Every CEO, CFO and ED's should read this book.

It should be required reading in any MBA field and certainly for anyone involved in the Fundraising Profession. Stephen Providence RI

As a baby boomer who writes lots of checks to charities, I found this book to be enlightening and enormously helpful. The author clearly has the information donors need to ensure that the money they give is used for the purposes they intend. Although he pulls no punches, Mr. White's heart is firmly in the world of charities. He wants to weed out the bad ones so the good ones succeed.

As a donor to a number of charities, I found this book to be enlightening. After reading it, I understood better how to look at charities with a more critical eye. In so doing, I can make certain my money is best spent. This book is a must for anyone interested in being a more focused donor.

Format: Hardcover
Equal parts investigative journalism and thoughtful commentary on the role of philanthropy in our society, Doug White successfully takes a dry topic and creates an informative and enjoyable page-turner. Current events seem to indicate that philanthropists would do well to read this considered and engaging text as they allocate resources across the broad spectrum of charitable giving opportunities both domestically and internationally. A must read for charitable organization leadership, individuals looking to engage in mindful giving, and their advisors. For those of us who are interested in this subject matter, we can only hope that a follow up volume will be forthcoming!
