For those who want to make a difference but don't know where to start, Charity and Philanthropy For Dummies is a friendly and practical guide to undertaking a range of charitable activities. It includes lots of strategies for philanthropic work such as:

  • Ideas for volunteering time and expertise
  • Ideas for how you can make a difference without having pots of money
  • Help with selecting where to donate or invest
  • Advice on socially responsible and impact investing
  • Techniques for reaching out to others to help your cause - from a local to a global level

Written by a team of philanthropists, it’s not focused on big-scale philanthropy and donating huge sums of money. Instead it includes a range of ways people can make a difference - whether they have few or vast means, or even if they prefer to donate their time or expertise instead of money.

Containing illustrative case studies from large and small charities to show what works and what doesn't, this one-stop practical guide is ideal for individuals who are looking to volunteer, fundraise for their favourite cause or give money to charity wisely.

Charity & Philanthropy For Dummies will be available in paperback and e-book priced £16.99
