New Books About Giving

Charity Navigator is featured in the new book, Ten Ways to Change the World in Your Twenties, written by environmental advocate Libuse Binder. The book is a collection of ideas and resources to help millenials tackle today’s toughest issues. Ten Ways includes information to help twentysomethings make a difference by:


  • Digging into what they love
  • Volunteering in ways big and small
  • Leading an eco-active lifestyle
  • Turning their passion into a vocation
  • Supporting political actions that reflect their values


Another book, SMART GENEROSITY: Everything You Need To Know About Charity, Philanthropy and Giving Wisely, by Renata Rafferty offers practical advice, real-life stories, and extensive recommendations guaranteed to uncomplicate even the largest philanthropic gifts. Ideal for financial planners and charity professionals, the book provides:
  • FIVE steps to defining your philanthropic focus
  • FOUR ways to assess a charity
  • The ONE question to ask before making a gift
  • The TEN warning signs a donor should never ignore


Ken Berger, Charity Navigator’s president & CEO, calls this new book “A rare voice of clarity and wise counsel for donors.”


Happy Reading!
