Keynote Presentation with Laura Otten:
Understanding the Philanthropic Zeitgeist
Friday, November 13, 1-2pm

Anyone who has responsibility for fundraising has struggled with trying to understand what drives philanthropy at any given time. just as nonprofits don’t operate in a vacuum, most donors don’t give in a vacuum. Organizations that fail to observe the philanthropic landscape and respond to what is going on in their community and in society-at-large, undermine their own fundraising prospects. campaigns that don’t mesh with reality, that fail to address trending concerns, that don’t respond to the ebbs and flows of cultural and societal influences, limit the odds of meeting fundraising goals. 
As we face the next emerging generation of philanthropists, how can we prepare to position ourselves to respond to future shifts? This Keynote presentation looks at the current status of the sector in the context of how reality, whether real or perceived, is influencing funding decisions and how you can up your philanthropic radar to find the best matches, and make connections and position your organization for the future.

Keynote Presentation with Dan Pallotta
Wednesday, September 30, 1-2pm


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?
