Philanthropy is not just for the wealthy. Anyone, through simple everyday actions, can make a positive difference in the world.

In The Art of Good Deeds, leaders in the world of philanthropy share personal stories and real-life experiences of the impact of good deeds--not large donations to charity or grand gestures, but simple and practical acts of kindness.

This insightful collection of narratives encourages deeper understanding of both financial and social giving through real-life people making philanthropy and good deeds part of their everyday life. A welcome donor-recognition gift for not-for-profits, crowdfunding campaigns, and others you want to either inspire or thank--or both!

Here you will meet models of giving whose actions you or your organization can follow to make a real difference. Philanthropic insiders reveal how small but powerful acts of kindness change the world for the better.

"We all need good deeds in our lives. This book shows that service is the greatest wealth we can transfer to others."
