Endorsements for The Art and Science of Donor Bliss

The Art and Science of Donor Bliss surprised me with the number of ways the Donor Bliss state of being can be pursued. This book makes a contribution to those who earnestly want and hope for more from their giving and to those who want to help donors as they make their way.

A Pleasant Surprise

I think the value [the Billmans] bring to the conversation is the idea that giving to others can elevate the human experience in ways that simply cannot be achieved through any other activity. It is a huge idea that goes far beyond being a “donor.”

What a Lovely Piece of Work

[The Art and Science of] Donor Bliss is a joy to read and provides a very thoughtful approach to building your own roadmap to becoming a philanthropist.

A Joy to Read

I enjoyed reading your book and hope others will, too, as we all need reminders of why philanthropy is rewarding, fun, and blissful.

Matthew T. Lambert, Vice President for University Advancement, William & Mary


A really lovely book… and I don’t think I have experienced one that focuses so much on both the positive AND the practical. I like how [the Billmans] offer both perspectives for a potential donor to understand the opportunities and the challenges. I like the use of many examples and I particularly appreciate both the aspirational tone and the practical advice.
