Kris’s latest book

Delusional Altruism

Delusional Altruism—a set of all-too-common errors in philanthropic strategy—can derail a program of giving and result in a loss of efficiency and effectiveness. This book asks philanthropists and charitable organizations to consider whether they have fallen under the spell of Delusional Altruism. Are you cutting out impactful giving in order to save money or avoid uncertainty? Is your philanthropic approach unnecessarily restricted by traditional thinking? This book will help you answer these questions and determine how you can achieve better outcomes through the process of Transformational Giving.

  • Ask questions that spur learning and fuel innovation
  • Believe that investment in yourself and your operation is important
  • Increase the speed of your actions to increase the impact of your giving
  • Give in ways that create lasting, sustainable change
  • Follow strategies to make your philanthropy unstoppable
"I believe philanthropists can change the world. And after advising funders for over 20 years, I also know they can get in their own way. I can help you transform how you give so that you can create lasting change on the issues and communities you care about."
