“Dan Pallotta has written the clearest and most articulate critique I have read of the system of values that our charities and other nonprofit organizations are supposed to follow.”

Uncharitable goes where no other book on the nonprofit sector has dared to tread. This Spring, the bestselling “nonprofit sector manifesto” (The Stanford Social Innovation Review) is leaping from page to screen in a landmark documentary directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal and featuring Chris Anderson (CEO of Ted) and Edward Norton (Actor and Founder of Crowdrise), among other movers and shakers in the world of philanthropy. 

Where other texts suggest ways to optimize performance inside the existing paradigm, Uncharitable suggests that the paradigm itself is the problem and calls into question our fundamental canons about charity. By declaring our independence from these obsolete ideas, Pallotta theorizes, we can dramatically accelerate progress on the most urgent social issues of our time.
