Many of us have the desire to make a difference. But when it comes down to it, how many really know what steps to take and how to fit philanthropy into our lives. The Generosity Plan shows readers the unexpected benefits and joys of generosity in our daily lives. This smart, practical guide to philanthropy illuminates the power of giving by helping readers to discover what inspires them, clarify what he or she can afford to give, and direct that generosity toward a better world.

Contributing time or money to causes far removed from the immediacy of our individual lives may feel overwhelming, especially in times of financial stress and uncertainty. Author Kathy LeMay breaks through these initial roadblocks to give easy and valuable tools to spur definite and rewarding action, demonstrating how our time, treasure, and talents can make a world of difference. By building and acting on a generosity plan, each one of us can create change simply by doing what we can, where we are, with what we have.

Review:

"I have always believed that individual security and stability depends on all of humanity, that we are all linked. The Generosity Plan is a must read because it provides constructive ways we can share our time, talent, and treasure to make a positive difference in the world." -- Arun Gandhi, president of the Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute, USA

"In these times of financial fear and challenge, we desperately need this book. Kathy LeMay dares each one of us to give, she teaches us how and makes a convincing argument that all true meaning and happiness is found in this act. Read this book, then start making the world better." -- Eve Ensler, playwright and founder of V-Day

"Kathy LeMay has a practical and thoughtful philosophy on philanthropy. Her comprehensive guide leads you through the entire process, from beginning to end, and gives plenty of useful suggestions on how to approach philanthropy and get in touch with your inner emotions about giving." -- Sheryl WuDunn, Pulitizer-Prize Winning Journalist and author of Half the Sky

"The Generosity Plan is practical, thought provoking, fun and organized to teach you how to think about all of your gifts -- beyond money -- so that giving and generosity becomes the enriching way that you live out the gift of your unique life each and every day. The big secret in giving is that the giver truly gets so much satisfaction back and in so many incredible ways. This I have experienced to be true and I invite you to experience for yourself." -- Jennifer Buffett, president and co-chair of the NoVo Foundation

"Kathy LeMay has helped me to determine how I am going to use my time, treasure and talent to make a difference in this world." -- Jacki Zehner, former managing partner, Goldman, Sachs & Co.

"Kathy grabs your attention and holds you captive throughout...!" -- Janice Weiss, YWCA Anchorage
