Giving Done Right Effective Philanthropy and Making Every Dollar Count

Host Organization: Live Talks


Phil Buchanan, Founding Chief executive, Center for Effective Philanthropy in conversation with  John Kobara COO, California Community Foundation discussing his book, Giving Done Right Effective Philanthropy and Making Every Dollar Count.

Phil Buchanan is founding chief executive of the Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP), a nonprofit that conducts research and advises the largest foundations in the country, including Ford, Hewlett, Packard, MacArthur, and Rockefeller. He is a columnist for the Chronicle of Philanthropy, and his writing has appeared in the New York Times and Financial Times.

“Giving Done Right punctures myths and provides helpful guidance about the complexities and joys of philanthropy.  Buchanan makes a persuasive and always practical case for why non-profits are not like businesses, why giving is not like investing, and how readers can find their own satisfying path to doing great good.”— Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Arbuckle Professor, Harvard Business School & Founder, Harvard University Advanced Leadership Initiative.
