We Need To Change The Way We View Nonprofits

Posted by Armanino Nonprofit Team

While watching a video a friend sent me on how to tie your shoes, I came across this video by activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta. His talk provides interesting insights on charities, the nonprofit business model and the standards society places on nonprofits. One of his points that I found very interesting and relevant is with respect to overhead expenses.  He says that too often nonprofits are judged by how little they spend, thus forcing organizations to keep overhead low.  This in turn stifles their growth and lowers their horizon.  He has ambitious goals for the nonprofit sector, and his ideas may be what the sector needs to really change the world.

The TEDTalks are the best talks from the TED Conference. The motto is “ideas worth spreading”.
