Generosity in quotes: Jennifer McCrea and Jeffrey Walker

“True generosity is generosity that sets the stage for personal transformation for everyone involved — the donor or philanthropist as well as the recipient or fund-raiser. And this kind of generosity happens only when there is no ‘other.’ When we break through the preordained roles of giver and receiver, generosity moves beyond a single fleeting act to shape how we live our lives. Generosity becomes you. This adds a delectable sweetness to the process . . . Everyone is lifted by this tide.”

Walker and McCreaJennifer McCrea, Senior Research Fellow at Harvard’s Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations, and Jeffrey Walker, philanthropist and board member, in their book The Generosity Network
