A Garden of Inspiration

Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life By What You Give, by prominent philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, is a practical guide to modern giving that redefines philanthropy for today’s era. Far beyond making monetary donations, philanthropy today encompasses giving time and knowledge, resources that can be just as valuable as financial contributions. Successful Philanthropy offers the practical guidance and inspiring perspective that empowers all of us to take part in building a better world. Learn to identify your passions and interests and discover how they can guide your philanthropic work. Find the best ways to choose a charity that will offer personal fulfillment while also making the best use of your contribution to the cause of your choice. Successful Philanthropy features a special introduction by Georgina Bloomberg who discusses how she paired her background as an equestrian and as a philanthropist to launch her charitable venture, The Riders Closet. In addition, the book features a foreword by Scott Elkins, US Campaign Director of the Margaret Thatcher Scholarship Trust at Oxford University and CEO of SE Advisors, who salutes author Jean Shafiroff for encouraging others to “help bring about change,” through the text and her philanthropic initiatives in any way possible.
