10 thoughts on “Giving Done Right

  1. Christian Hartman says:

    Anyone who wants to know how to give effectively needs to read this.

  2. Dixie Flatline says:

    This book helped me, as an individual small-scale giver, organize my thinking and crystallize my giving goals. Giving Done Right aims at small and large givers, as well as employees and executives of institutions whose focus is supporting non-profits.

    The author is opinionated about what works and what doesn't work, takes to task some common misconceptions about non-profits, and ends each chapter with a review of material and takeaways - almost like a lecture series in a university-level class. There are some examples and personal stories, but they add a little extra flair instead of being overbearing and constituting the bulk of the material (as some other books on the topic that I liked much less were).

  3. Isa says:

    This is required reading whether you are navigating a new chapter as a philanthropist, or are already a seasoned one. Buchanan is a clear writer who speaks in laymen's terms and sums up his points at the close of each chapter. Donors often make the mistake that giving is easy and Buchanan debunks that myth and provides sound counsel on how to give with intention, to give strategically and, in short, to give well.

    Easy to read and a welcome addition to the genre.

  4. Cristie Underwood says:

    This is a great book for anyone that is looking to donate money, but doesn't know how to go about choosing who would benefit from the gift the most. I like that the author aimed this at all people that donate, whether it is $1 or a million.

  5. Craig says:

    Well-thought and well-organized book for anyone that considers themselves a philanthropist. Even though Phil works for an organization that serves foundations, these principles are great for an individual to know and abide by, no matter if you give $5 or $50,000.

  6. Allison says:

    This book would be helpful to a person starting a foundation. It would also be helpful to folks who work for foundations (director, staff member) as a good overview of the charitable nonprofits landscape. The argument that nonprofits should behave more like businesses is addressed.

  7. Batul says:

    This is a book I read for research at work and so the way I rate it is based on how useful it's insights are rather than how well they're conveyed (although they are well conveyed). One point off for its US-heavy focus but that isn't the author's fault.

  8. Ethan says:

    Couldn't put this down!

  9. Johanna Wright says:

    I was glad for some thinking on the topic of where to donate but don't think I ended up with any answers. Was hoping for a bit more of a framework.

  10. Jessi says:

    This is a really good book about noprofits and how they work. There are great tidbits of information like -- you should not judge a nonprofit by its overhead costs. Giving coherent examples, Buchanan bucks the trend that I normally dislike in my nonfiction books -- using more stories than facts.
    Not just for givers, this book should be read by the people on nonprofit boards as well as the people at the top levels. I used to work in the nonprofit world and got to see firsthand what worked and what didn't and I think Buchanan has nailed almost everything.
    Will this book appeal to every reader? I don't know. I feel like this is more of a labor of love than a book that is going to appeal to a wide audience but it is a valuable book nonetheless.
