Some charities achieve much more than others, and some donors are more helpful than others - some `help' actually hinders charities. Wouldn't you rather that your donations achieved a lot rather than a little? This book shows how to do that, explaining what you need to know and what you need to do. Packed with information, insights and examples - plus eclectic tales from Oprah Winfrey, Albert Einstein, Private Eye and Harvard Business Review - it's invaluable whether you're giving money, time or anything else, and whether you're a school-child, a company or a billionaire.
