about

The Business of Givingdescribes the systems and processes philanthropists need to adopt in order to achieve their goals. It provides a "toolkit" for philanthropic investment taking the reader through each stage of their decision making. Its techniques are equally applicable to whatever investment vehicle is being utilized from traditional grants to new products such as social bonds and impact investing. Unlike many texts on the subject, the tools and processes described have been used and tested across hundreds of different programs and in making thousands of investment decisions.
