Uncharitable goes where no other book on the nonprofit sector has dared to tread

Uncharitable goes where no other book on the nonprofit sector has dared to tread. Pallotta turns upside down the way nonprofits have operated for 400 years and has compelling reasons as to why the way they have been run is wrong and evaluations of charities based on percentage of overhead versus AMOUNTS going to the cause makes little sense.

But Uncharitable is written as if they were controversial It doesn’t matter how money is raised for good causes so long as it’s raised. He wants us to focus on the ‘morality of outcomes’ rather than the ‘morality of tactics’.

But Uncharitable is written as if they were controversial. The book is based on a series of what seem to me to be false, and outdated, premises: The best people will only work for ‘top dollar’. It doesn’t matter how money is raised for good causes so long as it’s raised.

Dan Pallotta grasp textual the clearest and furthermost silver-tongued critique I have read of the regulations of values that our clemency and other nonprofit organization be musing to free out. Not every entity may agree near his posting, but the nonprofit world will irrefutably aim from a enthusiastic symposium of his arguments

Dan Pallotta has written Uncharitable as a response to every media report . Every nonprofit professional, meanwhile, should read Pallotta’s section on how nonprofits can use the power of advertising.

Everyone who cares about nonprofit organizations and their potential journalists to sophisticated donors to foundation officials-should read this section of the book.

Uncharitable is an unorthodox call to arms, inviting us to think beyond nonprofit ideology and bring economic freedom to the causes we love. Author Dan Pallotta argues that nonprofit ideology is a religious edifice that acts as a strict regulatory mechanism on natural economic law, thereby putting the nonprofit sector at an extreme disadvantage vis-a-vis the for-profit sector. In other words, the very system long cherished as the hallmark of American compassion undermines itself. This irrational system, Pallotta explains, has its roots in 400-year-old Puritan ethics that banished self-interest from the realm of charity. Today, nonprofit ideology creates an economic apartheid that acts against charity's self-interest. While the for-profit sector is permitted to use all the tools of capitalism to advance the sale of consumer goods, the nonprofit sector is prohibited from using any of them to fight hunger or disease. Capitalism is blamed for creating the inequities in our society, but charity, by its own ideology, is prohibited from using capitalism's tools to rectify them, creating the most extreme injustice. By ridding ourselves of these obsolete ideas, Pallotta theorizes, we can dramatically accelerate progress on the most urgent social issues of our time. Pallotta has written an important, provocative, timely, and accessible book that seeks to remedy this wrong and that will forever change the way you think about "charity."
