The new book by Sharna Goldseker and Michael Moody won’t be a classic someday. It is. Now. Their book is all about now and giving and this generation that, right before our very eyes, emerged from being the ‘next generation’ to what Goldseker and Moody reveal is the ‘now generation’—that generation with the intellectual, human, and financial capital needed to tackle the massive challenges confronting the planet, the country, and their own backyards. The Goldseker/Moody approach to telling the stories of these givers and this new age of giving is fresh and creative: at once inspirational and how to, heartening, and instructive. For families, emerging philanthropists, and old pros trying to disrupt themselves, this book is a lantern in dark times, a light in the world we are all trying to fathom—and fix.

Generational change is upon us, and Goldseker and Moody have spent years finding out what drives those best positioned to fund social change. What better way to understand next gen donors than hearing their stories first-hand in order to become effective partners in organizing, supporting, and advocating for the rights of those who need it most.

With great abundance comes great responsibility. In Sharna and Michael’s stunningly important book we have a deep and learned look into how (with ‘engagement’) and why (‘to achieve impact’) Gen Xers and Millennials are becoming today’s philanthropists. Give yourself the gift of knowing what to expect as you engage with emerging philanthropists from these cohorts. Join these authors as they bring to life the motivations, actions, and philosophies of giving of these remarkable, dedicated philanthropists who expect to help solve the social, economic, political, and cultural issues of the past and present, and who want to lead us toward a magnificent future for our planet and its peoples. I am sure that many of my silent generation cohort will love learning about the feeling of engagement and passion for impact among these young philanthropists.

The updated edition of Generation Impactcomes at a critical juncture for the increasingly complex and uncertain times we’re living in. The world has changed dramatically since it first came out only a few years ago, and the new preface offers an important ‘sense-making’ perspective about how next gen donors are responding to societal upheavals and existential crises. The Best Practice Guides are provocative and insightful, as well as practical and realistic. I will be referring to them often as thedefinitive playbook for engaging next gen donors and changemakers as they rise to meet the moments of our time.

When my clients and students express curiosity or frustration about engaging Gen Xers and Millennials in philanthropy, I tell them that the ‘go to’ book is Generation Impact. This book has been a refreshing guide and resource for me and so many. The insights and profiles in the book are framed with solid philanthropic analysis and a generous supply of informed observations. Of particular importance to me is the exploration of the continuing persistence of values as a primary motivator for Gen X and Millennial philanthropy—as they have been for centuries.
