Good read... heres a quote from the article

"Transforming Leadership is vision, planning, communication and creative action which has a positive underlying effect on a group of people around a clear set of values and beliefs, to accomplish a clear set of measurable goals. This transforming approach simultaneously impacts the personal development and corporate productivity of all involved."

Philanthropy finally surpasses pre-recession levels

Philanthropy finally surpasses pre-recession levels | Nonprofit Management and Leadership | Scoop.it
SEATTLE — Charitable giving in the United States has surpassed pre-recession levels for the first time in seven years, according to a national organization that tracks the generosity of Americans. Americans gave an estimated $358 billion to charity in 2014, about $47 billion more than they gave in 2007, the previous peak of charitable giving in the United States. Last year marked the fifth year of increased giving, but the chairman of the Giving USA foundation said charities had not expected to reach pre-recession levels for a few more years. “We know as the economy improved, things would get better. We were just not sure what that point would be,” said Keith Curtis, chairman of the Giving USA Foundation. In 2014, giving increased from individuals, corporations, foundation and bequests, according to the Giving USA report, which was released Tuesday.
