Join Conversation Crossroad hosts Betty-Lynn White and Garrison Leykam for this prerecorded interview with Leslie R. Crutchfield, co-author with John V. Kania and Mark R. Kramer, of "Do More Than Give: The Six Practices of Donors Who Change the World." The book provides a blueprint for individuals, philanthropists, and foundation leaders to increase their impact. Based on "Forces for Good," this groundbreaking book demonstrates how the six practices of high-impact nonprofits apply to donors aiming to advance social causes. Rather than focus on the mechanics of effective grantmaking, reporting, or evaluation, this book instead proposes that donors can become proactive catalysts for change by rising to meet the challenges of our increasingly interdependent world. Key principles include: going beyond check writing/traditional volunteering; advocating for change; leveraging business; forging peer networks; empowering individuals; leading adaptively; and developing learning organizations. In good economic times or bad, this book provides guidance for givers to increase the impact of their charitable resources and go beyond check-writing to help solve problems and change the world. Leslie Crutchfield is an author, social entrepreneur, and leading authority on scaling social innovation and high-impact philanthropy. She serves as a senior advisor at FSG, a global social impact strategy firm, and she coauthored "Forces for Good: The Six Practices of High-Impact Nonprofits," named by The Economist on its Best Business Books of the Year list. She is a frequent media contributor whose work has been featured in Fast Company, The Washington Post, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, and Stanford Social Innovation Review. Leslie serves on the boards of SEED Foundation and Kiva.
