Keynote Presentation: Uncharitable
Based on Dan Pallotta's book “Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential,” the best-selling title in the history of Tufts University Press and which the Stanford Social Innovation Review said “deserves to become the nonprofit sector’s new manifesto,” this keynote presentation explores how the nonprofit paradigm is a problem, and calls into question our fundamental canons about charity.
Dan Pallotta discusses how society’s nonprofit ethic undermines our ability to eradicate great problems, and, ironically, puts charity at a severe disadvantage to the for-profit sector at every level. We have two rule books; one for charity, and one for everything else. This economic apartheid denies charity the powerful tools of capitalism, while everyone else is permitted to use them without restraint. This all occurs in the name of charity, but it is a charity whose principal benefit flows to the for-profit sector. This presentation puts a new cause on the map - equal economic rights for charity. Are you ready to be awakened to the fact that they are so unequal to begin with?
