Product Details


2022 PROSE Award Winner, Economics

How We Give Now offers anyone interested in a fuller understanding of how we participate in society, whether it be with our time, money, or data, a lot to consider — about what our shared futures can look like, if we were to pause to think more deeply about how we do things.”
—Philanthropy News Digest

“Dr. Lucy Bernholz has written the most important book on philanthropy this year… Bernholz’s biggest contribution with this book is the demonstration of how much generosity is happening outside the transaction of writing a cheque to a charity, and how much oxygen is taken up in the charity sector by this narrow framework.”
—The Charity Report

“An impressively thought-provoking and inspiring work, this timely synthesis of ideas and practicality has relevance for public policy, economics, sociology, the sciences, and more. Anyone interested in contributing to the greater good should consider reading it.”
