Reynolds Speaker Series: Uncharitable – How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential

Join us on Wednesday, March 12th, 2014 at NYU’s Paulson Auditorium (40 West 4th St, New York, NY) from 6:30 – 8pm for Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential, a presentation by and discussion with Dan Pallotta, Founder and Chief Humanity Officer, Advertising for Humanity.

The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited.  An RSVP is required by clicking here or by cutting and pasting http://bit.ly/pallottarsvp into your browser

Now in its eighth year, the NYU Reynolds Social Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century Speaker Series features a remarkable selection of social entrepreneurs and related leaders who have launched extraordinary programs, companies and movements addressing the most pressing challenges of the 21st century.  Reflecting the NYU Reynolds belief that social entrepreneurship is a meta-profession drawing on cross-disciplinary knowledge and practice, the series presents prominent social entrepreneurs and leaders from across the spectrum of public and professional sectors who will share their insights as cutting-edge, far reaching change makers.

Dan is an activist, author and creator of the multi-day charitable event industry which raised in excess of half a billion dollars in nine years.  He raises the question; “Does the non-profit sector have a serious role to play in changing the world?” and argues that it does, if we reinvent the way humanity thinks about change.  His best-selling book “Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential,” ventures into a world that others dare not go, and argues that society’s non-profit ethic undermines our ability to eradicate great problems, and, ironically, puts charity at a severe disadvantage to the for-profit sector at every level.  Spend an evening with Dan and learn how changing the way we think can lead to large-scale social innovation.

Dan Pallotta is a builder of movements.  He created the Breast Cancer 3-Day walks and the multi-day AIDS Rides, which are the subject of Harvard Business School case studies. The model and methods he created are now employed by dozens of charities and raise in excess of $100 million annually for important causes from pediatric leukemia to AIDS to suicide prevention and many others. He’s iconic TED 2013 Talk has been viewed more than 2.9 million times and is one of the top 50 most-viewed TED Talks of all time.  He has been written about in feature and cover stories in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Stanford Social Innovation Review, and has appeared on The Today Show, CNN, CNBC, American Public Media’s Marketplace, and on numerous NPR stations, among others.
