Doing Good . . . Says Who? Stories from Volunteers, Nonprofits, Donors, and Those They Want to Help
Doing Good. . . Says Who? explores the impact of good intentions from the inside.
The authors, Connie Newton and Fran Early, conducted over 400 interviews and synthesized the lessons learned from being on the ground with volunteers, nonprofits, donors, and – most uniquely – the intended beneficiaries of goodwill. Through storytelling, humor, analysis, practical advice and a discussion guide, five key concepts emerge:
1. Respect and value people
2. Build trust through relationships
3. Do with rather than for
4. Ensure feedback and accountability
5. Evaluate every step of the way
These principles will help you evaluate your motivations, question assumptions, and turn good intentions into positive outcomes.
