For decades, Jennifer McCrea and Jeff Walker have been guiding and advising the leaders of many of today’s most effective nonprofit organizations (including mine), in fields ranging from poverty relief and education reform to healthcare, the arts, and the environment—with truly impressive results.  What a blessing that they’re now making that same wealth of insight available to all of us through The Generosity Network.” ~ Quincy Jones, musician, composer, producer, arranger, conductor on The Generosity Network: New Transformational Tools for Successful Fund-Raising

"Determining why, when, and to whom people feel compelled to be generous affords invaluable insight into positive and problematic ways of life. Organ donation, volunteering, and the funding of charities can all be illuminated by sociological and psychological perspectives on how American adults conceive of and demonstrate generosity. Focusing not only on financial giving but on the many diverse forms generosity can take, Christian Smith and Hilary Davidson show the deep impact-usually good, sometimes destructive-that giving has on individuals." ~ The Paradox of Generosity: Giving We Receive, Grasping We Lose

Those who follow the ALTACITIES blogs and sites realize by now that the constant theme of the week is GENEROSITY, GRATITUDE, and CHARITY.

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

Is it possible to live this life and not owe someone a debt of gratitude?  All of us are in some way the beneficiary of the generosity of others.  Deeds (things) seen and unseen have brought some level of benefit to each and everyone of us. Gratitude, then, is a measure of thanks owed to someone who deserves gratitude. (Actually payment of a debt is owed.) To whom do you owe a debt of gratitude for something they have done for you?  How are you showing that gratitude?

Not related, per se, to this account, but along the theme of sharing GRATITUDE is the following 'social current see'*

‘In God We Trust’ ▶ GIFT♥WORTH Archive in a WORD

The ubiquitous Mueller investigation into so-called and alleged Russian “collusion” in the 2016 US Presidential Campaign has some chilling effects far beyond Washington circles, perhaps all the way to main street America and the nonprofit, non-governmental agencies that serve all of society.
“Trust” Regarding the Mueller fallout, U.S. subsidiaries of foreign-owned corporations say they are most concerned that the law changes would reverse a long-standing exemption and require their lobbyists to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The 1938 law has gained new fame with the indictments of former lobbyists Rick Gates and Paul Manafort, who worked on President Donald Trump’s campaign, for allegedly failing to comply with it. The charges stem from the investigation of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III into foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election.
What might this have to do with nonprofit organizations?  Read further:
