"Though never stated in these words, one of the premises of Mr. Ewert’s book is that giving is a sacred act. I’m especially grateful for the care that Mr. Ewert takes to embed generosity in the daily round, in the concrete give and take of everyday decisions, in the times we give ourselves to stop and reflect. Each chapter provides practical exercises to help one or another aspect of generosity come alive. These exercises include a “Generosity Self-Assessment,” journaling suggestions, and other practices that help transform giving from an object of study to a way of thinking and being." –G. Albert Ruesga, President & CEO, Greater New Orleans Foundation
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, it 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. Creative tools for reflection and practice guide readers’ progress. This practical yet wise volume also features information about collective giving in a community setting, family, or giving circle. Ideal for religious and civic organizations, The Generosity Path includes a discussion guide for group use.

Mark V. Ewert is a certified leadership and philanthropic coach, as well as a fundraising consultant, facilitator, and educator for nonprofit organizations. He is also a nationwide congregational stewardship consultant for religious communities.
