Philanthropy for the Wise Donor-Investor: a Primer for Families on Strategic Giving

This monograph describes strategic philanthropy as giving that is designed around focused research, creative planning, proven strategies, careful execution and thorough follow-up. To be truly effective and rewarding, strategic philanthropy must reflect and be driven by your core values and concerns. It should empower the family to change the world by energizing your passions-whether through a program to nurture early childhood literacy or an innovative career education program for inner-city youth.
