“The Way We Think About Charity Is Dead Wrong”
- Work for a ‘Not-For-Profit’
- On the Board of a ‘Not-For-Profit’
- Ever given money to a ‘Not-For-Profit’
- Ever been helped by a ‘Not-For-Profit’

YOU NEED TO WATCH AN AMAZING TED TALK THAT WAS JUST FILMED THIS MONTH. It’s Dan Pallotta calling out the double standard that drives what he calls “the broken relationship to charities”.
This is the essence of a TED TALK: BOLD. CHALLENGING. PROVOCATIVE.
I urge you to take 18 minutes and 54 seconds to CHALLENGE YOUR THINKING.
Special Note: Dan comes at this a little differently then we do. His message is to stop worrying about how much we spend on fundraising … and focus on how much money is available for IMPACT.
Ours, as you all know, is that IMPACT drives INCOME … not the other way around.
Give me your feedback on Dan’s message.
