Overview

"An Apollo program for American philanthropy and the nonprofit sector." —Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Praise for Charity Case

"Every once in a while a book states the obvious in such a compelling way that it rises to the level of genius. Charity Case is that exciting. It dares the whole of the charitable industry to raise its voice to the level of the music business and other consumer giants. In its insistence that the industry reject the role of second-class citizen, it has the potential to make charity sexy, and that's the only way charity is ever going to change the world."

Clive Davis, chief creative officer, Sony Music; founder, Arista Records; former president, Columbia Records

"If we had a prize for the most innovative thinking about charity and social change it would go to Dan Pallotta. Charity Case is the blueprint for unleashing the awesome power of this sector and enlightening the society that unknowingly holds it back. Simply brilliant and in a class by itself."

Peter Diamandis, chairman and CEO, X PRIZE Foundation

"Dan Pallotta invites, tempts, and provokes every single one of us to think differently about the humanitarian sector. He has a big vision and artfully makes a case for creating a sector-wide movement capable of powerful actions and needle-moving change that improve lives. In this rapidly changing and increasingly complex world, Dan's voice is crisp, clear, and compelling."

Diana Aviv, president and CEO, Independent Sector

"Dan Pallotta is a big thinker—impatient, generous, and insightful. It's worth hearing him out."

Seth Godin, author, Tribes

"The nonprofit world needs innovation, and Dan Pallotta is helping us see how new ideas can help make our world more successful. In these tough times, we need his out-of-the-box ideas!"

Bobby Shriver, cofounder, Product (RED)

Meet the Author

Dan Pallotta is a builder of movements. He created the multi-day charitable fundraising event industry, including the AIDS Rides and Breast Cancer 3-Days, which raised $582 million in nine years and were the subject of a Harvard Business School case study. Multi-day charitable events have raised in excess of $1.1 billion to date. The Stanford Social Innovation Review said his groundbreaking 2009 book Uncharitable deserves to become "the nonprofit sector's new manifesto." He lives in Massachusetts.
