In the first book on philanthropy written from a donor’s perspective, businesswoman and philanthropist Lisa Greer lifts the lid on our charitable sector, with an authentic account that describes exactly how outdated the sector has become and why it’s at risk of collapse.
Weaving in her story of instant wealth and philanthropy, Lisa showcases the latest research, as well as dozens of interviews with donors, nonprofit professionals and leading academics in the field. She also provides much-needed ethical solutions that apply to any business, including:
- Upfront ways to ask for money
- Effective communications strategies
- Ways to be transparent from the outset
- How to curate meaningful events
Philanthropy Revolution is the audiobook all fundraisers, nonprofits and donors should be using to create trusting, authentic partnerships that can be sustained long-term. Philanthropy is changing dramatically, and it needs nothing short of an intervention to succeed. In this audiobook, Lisa Greer shows us how to 'save giving' by providing a clear path to success. With her help, the nonprofit world will see its donors energized, its charities better supported and its impact increased, all while building a more honest philanthropic culture.
Join author Lisa Greer as she speaks to AFPKC about her book Philanthropy Revolution and shares a keynote speech about how to apply the principles from her book in your organization in a meaningful and productive way.
