    GENERATION IMPACT: HOW NEXT GEN DONORS ARE REVOLUTIONIZING GIVING. Sharna Goldseker. Wiley, 2017. 336pp. on order : Meet the next generation of big donors -- the Gen X and Millennial philanthropists who will be the most significant donors ever and will shape our world in profound ways. Hear them describe their ambitious plans to revolutionize giving so it achieves greater impact. And learn how to help them succeed in a world that needs smart, effective donors now more than ever.... As "next gen donors" step into their philanthropic roles, they have not only unprecedented financial resources, but also big ideas for how to wield their financial power. They want to disrupt the traditional world of charitable giving, and they want to do so now, not after they retire to a life of philanthropic leisure.... Generation Impact pulls back the curtain on these rising leaders and their "Impact Revolution," offering both extensive firsthand accounts and expert analysis of the hands-on, boundary-pushing, unconventional strategies next gen donors are beginning to pursue. This fascinating book also shows another side of the donors in Generation Impact: they want to respect the past even as they transform the future. They are determined to honor the philanthropic legacies and values they’ve inherited by making big giving more effective than ever before. If they succeed, they can make historic progress on causes from education to the environment, from human rights to health care.... Based on years of research and close engagement with next gen donors, Generation Impact offers a unique profile of the new faces of philanthropy. Find out, directly from them:

  • How they want to revolutionize giving to expand its positive impact on our lives and our communities.
  • Which causes interest them, how they want to engage with those causes … and, perhaps more important, how they do not want to engage.
  • Which new tools and strategies for change excite them most.
  • What they are learning from previous generations, and what they want to bring to their work alongside those generations.
  • How we can all ensure their historic potential is channeled in ways that make our world better.

    Writing persuasive proposals is more of an art than a science. The processes and procedures you will learn in this book are heuristics, based on tested rhetorical principles, to help you work through the grant seeking process in a systematic way. The process itself is transferable to most of the proposals that you will write—from $5,000 for a summer research project to $500,000 for establishing a Crisis Nursery in your county—so as you practice it, you will become more proficient, learn new skills, and eventually, change the way you think about grant seeking and proposal writing.
