Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The newest edition of this classic book shows how anyone can align and integrate values, passions, and dreams for their communities and families into their giving plans. Inspired Philanthropy explains how to make a difference by creating giving and legacy plans, tells what questions to ask nonprofits, and spells out how to partner with advisors and nonprofit leaders for inspired outcomes. In addition to overall updates to statistics, the new edition includes a discussion of the implications of the Buffett gift to the Gates Foundation; new legacy planning tools; expanded resources on youth, giving circles, and communities of color; and key questions for advisors and donors. Additional resources are available on the enclosed CD-ROM.

I have given to charities for years, but always felt that I'd be able to give better with a solid plan. Inspired Philanthropy is a very comprehensive guide to creating a plan, funding it and managing it. It's a quick read too!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By J. Janssen on January 22, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is both inspiring and practical for those who are interested in being more thoughtful and strategic in their giving.

Gary presents a great framework and step by step plan for anyone looking to make a real impact with their giving - rather than giving haphazardly to the variety of requests received throughout the year.

She helps people explore their values and align them with their giving. She also helps people examine the root causes of the problems and needs, rather than just the superficial symptoms.

If you are looking to make every hard earned dollar of your giving count and have real impact, Inspired Philanthropy is a terrific resource for you.

The book has motivated our family to give more - to do it in ways that are aligned with our values - and to have real impact. Thanks Tracy for inspiring our philanthropy!
