Summary
Arguing that traditional charity frequently reinforces the status quo and maintains the dynamics of control and dependence, this user friendly handbook for the socially conscious explain why, where, and how to give money so that it does the most good. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Collins, Pam Rogers, and Joan P. Garner, all longtime activists and directors of social change organizations, show that traditional charity most often reinforces the status quo and maintains the dynamics of dependency and control. They maintain that the progressive ethic of giving, on the other hand, offers ingenious ways to attack the root causes of social problems. Step-by-step explanations of how to be a deliberate and progressive giver address topics such as learning how to assess what one can give, investing proactively, making a socially beneficial will, understanding tax-wise giving, when and how to find help and guidance, and making an actual funding plan. The book contains many anecdotes and cartoons. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
