Doing Good Well is a wonderful primer on philanthropy and the nonprofit sector.

Willie's provocative perspective on the donor, donor motivations, regulation, compensation, the rich/poor divide and social enterprises to name just a few, is enlightening and refreshing.

As president and CEO of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), I have personally witnessed Willie's passion and commitment to the nonprofit sector. He was the Chairman of the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre in Singapore when we sought to setup AFP's Singapore chapter. He and his colleagues have helped us and influenced the growth of AFP and fundraising in the region. His own fundraising experiences and knowledge of the sector provide the reader with special insights and observations, especially around accountability and transparency.

This book provides the reader a very clear understanding of philanthropy and nonprofits not just in Asia but around the world, for as Willie notes, philanthropy is “charity without borders.” He reminds the reader of the philosophy of Andrew Carnegie and combines this ageless wisdom with his own thoughts and experiences. At the same time, he peppers his book with interesting research from toilet NGOs to quirky quotes from his penchant for comics.

You will enjoy this book immensely!
