John Stanley is an advisor to major donors and strategic grant-makers who want to do the most good with their currencies. He is also the author of Connected for Good: A Gameplan for a Generous Life and the creator of the Generosity Gameplan™. This is a step-by-step process for people of means and substance who seek to create real change using a new approach to generosity. John is also a consultant who provides management services to donors, foundations, and nonprofits that want to increase their impact by giving from the heart.
John's goal is to bring generous people to a destination where each act of generosity comes from the true desires of their heart; where relationships are built an inch wide and a mile deep; where strengths of skills and character are spent from an inexhaustible well of care; and where giving financial and material resources feels like sharing from an abundance rather than giving from what is leftover.
John has served some of the nation’s most generous families and the nonprofits they care about through The Legacy Group, a consulting and management firm he founded in 1999. He is also a grant-maker, giving through and serving his family's foundation as a trustee.
