A member of Legatus’ Milwaukee Chapter, Stanley contends that the best kind of generosity is done with others, not for others. People of means are growing weary of fundraising run by charity leaders who’ve adopted the tactics of professional salespeople. They’re looking for ways to make change that’s important to them, rather than just responding to an endless stream of appeals and campaigns.

Subtitled A Gameplan for a Generous Life, the book presents a fresh model for generosity. Going beyond the traditional time, talent, and treasure, Stanley encourages giving from the renewable currencies of relationships, strengths, and resources.
