Change Our Thinking to Change the World

I believe the nonprofit world has to improve. Dan Pallotta thinks “the way we think about charity is dead wrong”. This is one of the leading conversations I believe could finally move philanthropy forward rapidly. It’s a 19 minute TED Talk but I’d love to know what you think about this. Here’s just a couple quotes to entice you…

“What we know about charity and the nonprofit sector is undermining the causes we believe in and our desire to change the world,”

“Our social problems are gigantic in scale, our organizations are tiny up against them — and we have beliefs that keep them tiny,”

“Our generation does not want its epitaph to read: ‘We kept charity overheads low’. We want it to read ‘that we changed the world and that part of the way we did that was by changing the way we think about these things.”
