Notre façon de considérer les œuvres caritatives est complètement erronée

Militant et collecteur de fonds, Dan Pallotta dénonce le deux poids deux mesures qui anime notre relation brisée avec les organisations caritatives. Selon lui, trop d'organisations à but non lucratif sont valorisées quand elles dépensent peu - et non pour ce qu'elles réalisent. Au lieu d'assimiler la frugalité à la morale, il nous demande de commencer à valoriser les organisations caritatives pour leurs grands objectifs et leurs grandes réalisations (même si cela s'accompagne de grandes dépenses). Dans ce discours audacieux, il nous dit : changeons la façon dont nous pensons changer le monde. 

Speakers Dan Pallotta: Charity defender

Dan Pallotta
Everything the donating public has been taught about giving is dysfunctional, says AIDS Ride founder Dan Pallotta. He aims to transform the way society thinks about charity and giving and change.

Why you should listen to him:

"The nonprofit sector is critical to our dream of changing the world. Yet there is no greater injustice than the double standard that exists between the for-profit and nonprofit sectors. One gets to feast on marketing, risk-taking, capital and financial incentive, the other is sentenced to begging,” Dan Pallotta says in discussing his latest book, Charity Case. This economic starvation of our nonprofits is why he believes we are not moving the needle on great social problems. “My goal … is to fundamentally transform the way the public thinks about charity within 10 years.”
Pallotta is best known for creating the multi-day charitable event industry, and a new generation of philanthropists with the AIDS Rides and Breast Cancer 3-Day events, which raised $582 million in nine years. He is president of Advertising for Humanity, which helps foundations and philanthropists transform the growth potential of their favorite grantees. He is also the founder and President of the Charity Defense Council.
