About the Author

Steven Ketchpel, Ph.D. is the author of Giving Back:  Discover Your Values and Put Them Into Action Through Volunteering and Donating.

An active volunteer and fund raiser, he wanted to share a practical guide to make it easy for others to get involved in volunteering and donating.

Inspired by the What Color Is Your Parachute? job hunters guide by Richard Nelson Bolles, he wrote Giving Back as a step-by-step guide for finding the causes, organizations, and projects that are meaningful to you and your family and where you can give back by sharing your time and money in order to change the world.

Steven has an A.B. in Computer Science from Harvard College, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University.  He has published more than a dozen technical articles, and is a patented inventor.  He has served as a non-profit Director and fund raising chair.  As a Reuters Digital Vision Fellow at Stanford University, he worked with the Grameen Foundation Technology Center on the early stages of an open source loan portfolio management system for micro-finance (Mifos).
