Hear them describe their ambitious plans to revolutionize giving so it achieves greater impact. And learn how to help them succeed in a world that needs smart, effective donors now more than ever. As "next gen donors" step into their philanthropic roles, they have not only unprecedented financial resources, but also big ideas for how to wield their financial power. They want to disrupt the traditional world of charitable giving, and they want to do so now, not after they retire to a life of philanthropic leisure.

A philanthropist is anyone who gives anything-time, money, experience, skills, and networks-in any amount to create a betterworld. Every day millions of ordinary people exhibit extraordinary generosity. Regardless of age, income, religion, and beliefs, we want to touch the lives of others. Yet philanthropy is often reactive-we write checks when natural disasters strike, we give to our schools and places of worship, or we support friends running a marathon for a cure. How can we transform these occasional acts of giving into consistent generosity that creates enduring impact? Moreover, how can we harness the most exciting opportunities that the 21st century offers with the power of technology, collaboration, and entrepreneurship? With so many new ways to give, selecting the strategy and organizations that best match your own philanthropic goals can be a daunting task. Giving 2.0 shows how to navigate these oceans of possibilities, empowering you to move from reactive to proactive. No matter what, when, and why you give, Giving 2.0 is the ultimate resource to guide your giving journey. Based on her wide-ranging experience as a philanthropist, educator, and social innovator, Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen shares the most effective strategies she herself pilots. Through dozens of real-world stories, Giving 2.0 shows how everyone can find innovative and powerful methods to give their time, money, and expertise-whether volunteering and fundraising, leveraging technology and social media, creating social innovation. or starting a giving circle, fund, foundation, nonprofit, or advocacy group. Accessible, practical, and deeply personal, Giving 2.0 shows how individual contributions-of every size-go further when we bring both our hearts and our minds to philanthropy to reach our fullest potential. Ultimately, Giving 2.0 is an indispensable tool for everyone aspiring to create social impact, transmit giving values to their children, and find long-lasting meaning from generosity.
What makes great nonprofits great? Not large budgets. Not snazzy marketing. Not perfect management. The answer is not what you might think. Great nonprofits spend as much time working with institutions outside their four walls as they do managing their internal operations. They use the power of leverage to become greater forces for good. This landmark book reveals the six powerful practices of 12 high-impact nonprofits and tells their compelling stories. Leslie Crutchfield and Heather McLeod Grant spent four years surveying thousands of nonprofit leaders, conducting hundreds of interviews, and studying in-depth a dozen high-impact organizations to uncover their secrets to success. Their quest took them from the well-known (Habitat for Humanity) to the less well-known (YouthBuild USA) and to the unexpected (the Exploratorium). What the authors discovered surprised them. How did seeing a pile of McDonald's trash lead Environmental Defense's president to join forces with business instead of treating it as the enemy? Why did a school bus driver prompt Self-Help Credit Union to move from serving low-income groups in North Carolina to launching a national advocacy campaign against predatory lenders? And how did Teach For America turn the teachers it places in underserved public schools into a national vanguard for education reform? At a time when the social sector has grown to more than $1 trillion, understanding what leads to impact is essential. Whether you're a nonprofit leader, philanthropist, business executive, board member, volunteer, or simply interested in changing the world, this book will inspire you to be a stronger force for good.
