Knowledge philanthropists seek an engagement with your organization, because they are motivated to contribute to community. It is important at the beginning to have each knowledge philanthropist articulate what attracted them to this role in your organization. Why do they want to contribute their skills? What is in it for them? What is the “payment” they are seeking from the experience? A great engagement experience is one where the knowledge philanthropist is paid with meaning.

This resource includes a template for the Window of Work with instructions on how to use it. This simple yet powerful tool can provide salaried employees with information about each knowledge philanthropist, what motivates them and what they want to learn. From this information, salaried employees can develop a perfect role that is win-win for the knowledge philanthropist AND the organization.
