"...for all of the creativity that is poured into financial innovation, few people spend their days trying to invent financial instruments that can solve - rather than cause - social problems."
- this goes far beyond just 'financial' instruments. I want to be one of those few and hope to aspire more than a few to do the same!

This was a great book for me as I'm starting my career in philanthropy. The book, written for donors wanting to be more catalytic and have higher impact, laid out some very s

i stopped reading at page 86. pretty much, this book is for philanthropists, which means that you should have money before indulging. it reminds me (and depresses me) about how power works in this world, and basically persuades people to use their power in non-profit, much like they already do in for-profit - practicing advocacy (AKA lobbying) and pulling strings to be more effective than just dollars.

This book will make donors re-think their philanthropic strategies. It pushes donors to do more than passively cut checks but instead be active participants and advocates for change. It encourages donors to narrow the scope of their giving and commit to a cause, to listen to the people they serve, and to advocate and lobby for their causes. The book also discusses shareholder advocacy and voter proxies, networking, and sharing knowledge.

I will be re-reading this book. The message and examples of how to make giving go farther were very engaging. I particularly liked the chapter on collaborations.
