Read full description of the books:



With a foreword by economist Tomáš Sedláček, best-selling author of Economics of Good and Evil: The Quest for Economic Meaning from Gilgamesh to Wall Street, IMPACT X profiles 30 impact makers from an oceanographer, a nine-time Grammy Award winner, to a U.S. Presidential Award winner. As we work together, especially across sectors, we can address highly complex social issues. What IMPACT X makes clear is that there is no individual strength without community support, and a community can only be healthy and strong with the support of the individual. Plackis-Cheng challenges readers to invest for impact—find the place where passion and economics meet—for soulful and purposeful community involvement.

“Many people in the nonprofits speak about the people and the planet. Yet, when it comes to profits, it remains awkwardly silent. A profit, at least a healthy balanced budget, is the oxygen for any organization: You need it to survive but it is not the reason to live. Impact X combines the heart of a nonprofit with the mind of a for-profit.” — WOUTER BAX
Deputy Chief, NOS 24 (Dutch Public Broadcasting Service)

Paksy Plackis-Cheng has done an extraordinary thing. She has vividly brought to life the important notion that we too often silo what should be integrated. Pursuing financial profit and seeking social returns for our communities are not, and have never really been, mutually exclusive. Indeed they are more often than not inextricably linked. But the author does not preach; rather she facilitates, with a good deal of elegance, the reader’s access to those inspirational people among us who have this wisdom and practice it daily.”
— RONALD V. GALLO, ED.D.
President & CEO, Santa Barbara Foundation

“As a life-long entrepreneur, I appreciate Paksy’s recognition of the importance of private sector accountability in non- profit and social B-corp ventures. As she rightfully states, ‘Investing capital in socially sound companies that look at long-term outcomes... is more sensible than simply writing a check to charity and hoping for the best.’ Paksy’s apolitical, pragmatic approach to enabling social good is one that all forward-looking communities should closely consider.”
— JOHN GREATHOUSE
Serial Entrepreneur & Partner, Rincon Venture Partners

“Impact X asks that we not be armchair admirers rather, that we pick up the torch and find our way to this new society by contributing our intelligent best. This book is smart, illuminating, and contains an empowering call to action.”
— JODY TURNER
Culture of Future, Future Trend Strategies

“Paksy Plackis-Cheng gives the reader an international journey of philanthropy. Her inspiring interviews, successful examples, inclusive research, and sensitive intuition inspire us all to be partners in creating a more giving future.”
— ANNE TOWBES
