Jim Lord

The Center for Leadership Philanthropy


Jim Lord has devoted his life to expanding what’s possible for people who want to change the world. His early years working on capital campaigns led to "The Raising of Money," the all-time bestselling book on the subject. Curiosity about why people give of themselves led to his 40-year quest for answers from just about every discipline of human knowledge. Today, his by-invitation Philanthropic Quest retreats are sought after by leaders of organizations of social good, the philanthropic community, and civic and business leaders throughout the world. His forthcoming book is "What Kind of World Do You Want?" You’ll even get a peek into how one leading Lutheran organization has applied these methods to bring about major advances in their development program.
