This Guide by Stanford PACS is written for donors who are interested in significant and sustained giving. It was born out of their experience at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society in helping donors improve their philanthropic effectiveness. Although much of the Guide is relevant to philanthropy across the globe, it is focused on donors making gifts to US-registered charities.
