Michael Moody Book Author: Generation Impact - How Next Gen Donors are Revolutionizing Giving

With the rise of the Millennial generation as the next wave of philanthropists, do you as a nonprofit leader know what makes these Millennials “tick”? Do you know about their giving patterns? Do you know which causes interest them and how they want to engage with those causes and perhaps more importantly, how they don’t want to engage? These and other critical questions are answered by Michael Moody, co-author of the new book: GENERATION IMPACT: How Next Gen Donors are Revolutionizing Giving.

Michael is my guest today on the Nonprofit Leadership show.

Michael Moody is a family philanthropy expert and cultural sociologist who explores the role of nonprofits and philanthropy. He is the Frey Foundation Chair at the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University (Grand Rapids, MI), and earned a master’s in social science from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. from Princeton.

Book: Engine of Impact William F. Meehan III and Kim Starkey Jonkers

 
Are you ready for the largest intergenerational transfer of wealth in history? As a nonprofit leader, will you view this as an opportunity to transform these dollars into true, sustainable impact or will you risk missing out on reaching your full potential?

 
My guests on this week’s podcast, William F. Meehan III and Kim Starkey Jonkers, authors of a new book: “ENGINE OF IMPACT: Essentials of Strategic Leadership in the Nonprofit Sector”, respond to this critical moment in our history, tracing the nonprofit sector’s evolution from the Industrialist Era to the Information Era, and now today’s Impact Era. Based upon new Stanford research and decades of teaching, advising, grant making, and research, the authors present seven critical components of strategic leadership that set high-performing nonprofits apart, forming an “engine of impact”―a system that nonprofits must build, tune, and fuel if they hope to make a real difference in the world.
 
William F. Meehan III is the Lafayette Partners Lecturer in Strategic Management at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business and a Director Emeritus of McKinsey & Company. Kim Starkey Jonker is President and CEO of King Philanthropies, Lecturer in Management at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and former Executive Director of the Henry R. Kravis Prize in Nonprofit Leadership.
