Dan Pallotta Presentation:
Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential
Salt Lake City, UT – The Utah Nonprofits Association (UNA) is pleased to announce a special presentation, featuring world renowned speaker, Dan Pallotta. Pallotta has contributed to a new conversation about economic freedom for the humanitarian sector. His iconic TEDtalk on this topic has been viewed more than 1.2 million times. Pallotta is also founder and president of the Charity Defense Council.
The presentation is designed to make people take a hard look at the way we??ª?ve been taught to think about charity and change, to see that our outlook is upside down. If we changed the way we think about charity, charity could change the world. The discussion is based on Dan??ª?s book, Uncharitable, the bestselling title in the history of Tufts University Press. The Stanford Social Innovation Review said, ??ª?(it) deserves to become the nonprofit sector??ª?s new manifesto.”
Chris Bray, Executive Director for the UNA said, ??ª?The fact that Dan makes us uncomfortable and stretches our minds is what makes his message so important for both nonprofits and funders. As an organization UNA is interested in helping nonprofits better grasp basic business concepts to help them succeed. This is the work that is encompassed in our strategic plan to unify, strengthen and elevate nonprofits. We are so excited to bring this opportunity to provoke thought and spark relevant conversations and ideas for Utah nonprofits.??ª?
