Connected for Good, A Gameplan for a Generous Life
Presenter: John Stanley, The Legacy Group

"I believe that we can act on our generous impulses to the full if we start from the heart’s desire for connection. Giving that involves personal relationship and engagement is then more satisfying and sustainable." Going beyond the traditional time, talent, and treasure, Stanley encourages giving from the full range of our renewable currencies:

• Giving in our relationships means practicing amazingly ordinary generosity with those close to us. It also means building bridges between people in our network for their benefit, not ours. Friends and family are a tremendous source
of richness.

• Giving our strengths begins with the gift of presence and attention. We can then make sure that the charitable work we do draws on our skills and talents, making it more powerful for the organizations we serve and more enjoyable
for ourselves.

• Giving our resources falls into proper perspective when we give relationships and strengths first. Our feet follow our money, and we also find creative ways to use our possessions, space, time, and assets.

Finally, Stanley will explore how to make use of the multiplier effect to greatly increase impact. You give something away and receive as much or more back in return. You give but your supply isn’t diminished. Building relationships, expanding strengths,and leveraging resources contributes to the multiplier effect, as does giving upstream to prevent problems at their source.

John Stanley is the creator of the Generosity Gameplan®, a process designed to awaken a new way to be generous, to go beyond making a difference and instead create real change. His book Connected for Good: A Gameplan For a Generous Life is for anyone of means and substance, especially couples who long to build a generous future together by creating their own Generosity Gameplan.

John’s consulting helps donors take generosity to the next level by connecting it to their heart’s desire. In a systematic, step-by-step fashion he helps donors - individuals, couples, families and closely held businesses - discover generosity currencies in addition to their money and helps unlock these currencies to change their world.

John’s 30-year marriage to his wife Jamee has launched them into serving actively in their Parish marriage ministry. He also serves on the Boards of Relationships First, Institute for Family Studies, Leadership Network and Nativity Jesuit Middle School. John and Jamee are developing Wyndridge Vineyard in western Wisconsin and staying involved in the aspirations of their adult children, Karen and Micah.
