Overhead: Dan Pallotta on How Great Nonprofits Actually Work

On today’s show, we welcome one of the most influential human beings of my career: Dan Pallotta, champion of charity and the entire nonprofit business sector. Dan’s take on how we as a culture think about charity the wrong way planted a bedrock philosophy in my head for how I was going to grow and lead Stupid Cancer to scalable success without the pitfalls of donors complaining about “Overhead.” “I’ll give you money but don’t spend it on electricity. Only programs.” Dan’s much-ballyhooed book “Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential” has a new, more digestible School House Rock version called “The Everyday Philanthropist” that I encourage every single nonprofit Board member, staff member, and donor to read immediately. My favorite quote from Dan is this: “Human. Kind. Be Both.” Dan’s Latest Book: The Everyday Philanthropist. Dan’s TED Talk: The Way We Talk About Charity is Dead Wrong
