Integrated Generosity - Moving from Involuntary Philanthropy toward Intentional Stewardship and Directed Generosity

... LIVE more, LOVE more, GIVE more, and LEAVE more

Mark A. Trewitt’s new book, Integrated Generosity For Faith Based Families, ($31.99, paperback, 9781498445603) is directed at maximizing the immediate and long-term benefit of government tax incentives available through strategic charitable giving, and outlines a highly effective process that begins with optimizing tax reduction strategies. Readers will learn about opportunities to redirect income and estate taxes, referred to in the book as “Involuntary Philanthropy”, toward the more impactful endpoints of “Intentional Stewardship” toward family and “Directed Generosity” toward the causes important to them.
Insight provided into prudent methods of unleashing Kingdom giving and generosity are the result of the author’s heart for Christian ministry, as well as a career of over thirty years of experience in financial services. The concepts described can advance a family’s transition from worldly measures of success and wealth to greater significance in making an eternal difference … and so much more! If you are concerned whether what you are doing today will maximize your impact for the Kingdom – while leaving a lasting impact for family and charity when you are gone – this book is a must-read guide for you!

The author states, “By applying the ‘Planning Precepts’ found in Integrated Generosity, readers will be able to LIVE more, LOVE more, GIVE more, and LEAVE more!”

As a first time author, Trewitt was blessed with contributed manuscript content from a number of significant Christian leaders in the arena of “Kingdom Generosity”, and humbled by the volume and quality of endorsements received from early reviews, including the following:

"Integrated Generosity joins the power of biblical truth and stewardship with the practicalities of modern wealth management and Kingdom-oriented impact giving and philanthropy. In this book – and, its suggestions – you will certainly be challenged with fresh thinking and workable strategies that are both innovative and tested.” - Bob Shank, Founder/CEO of The Master's Program.

In addition to Bob Shank’s powerful Foreword and a closing chapter titled, “The Gospel of the Kingdom”, the manuscript also includes contributed chapters from David Wills, President of the National Christian Foundation, Todd Harper, President of Generous Giving, Steve Kaloper, Founder/CEO of Development Services Group and Aimee Minnich, Co-Founder/General Counsel of the Impact Investing Foundation.
