Keynote Speaker: Dan Pallotta, Founder of the Charity Defense Council

Author of Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential And Charity Case: How the Nonprofit Community Can Stand Up For Itself and Really Change the World

Author Dan Pallotta claims that the way we think about charity is dead wrong. He argues that we deny the social sector the ability to grow because of our short-sighted demand that we send every short-term dollar into direct services. Yet, if the sector cannot grow its own business structure, it can never match the scale of our great social problems.

The Stanford Social Innovation Review said Pallotta’s book Uncharitable “deserves to become the nonprofit sector’s new manifesto.”

Mr. Pallotta is one of the Top 100 most viewed TED Talk Speakers of all time.
