About the Author - Mark V. Ewert is a philanthropy and leadership coach for individuals, organizations, and communities. He guides clients to satisfying and high-impact non-profit relationships, while helping them ground their giving in their values, passions, and beliefs. He is a certified by Georgetown University and the International Coaching Federation, and has his Master’s from Norwich University. Mark’s experience includes leadership consulting for nonprofit and faith-based organizations.

About the Book - Did you know that last year individuals in America gave a combined total of over $228 Billion in charitable donations?  Philanthropy is becoming a part of our mainstream culture.  Generosity is supported by all of the major religious traditions and is universally considered a “virtue.”

What organizations do we give to and how do we judge the impact of our gifts?  How do we find richness in giving?  In his newly released book The Generosity Path, Mark Ewert, philanthropy, stewardship and leadership coach, guides us in conscious giving grounded in our values, beliefs and passions.

Financial giving can be its own spiritual path. We have a deep potential for meaning-making and life satisfaction when we look to grow from being occasional, haphazard donors to deliberate, ambitious ones--the life-changing transition from donor to philanthropist. With easy-to-read guidance, The Generosity Path sheds new light on our finances--connecting money to our values, beliefs, and loves--promoting skills and strategies in charitable giving.

Starting from a very personal place, The Generosity Path helps readers to find clarity in their own experience and then focus on their areas of passion to build a plan of action. Inspiring personal stories help demonstrate the development of financial generosity, the challenges involved, and the deeper benefits we all might expect from being more intentional with our giving.
