Review: Charity Case: How the Nonprofit Community Can Stand Up for Itself and Really Change the World

Charity Case: How the Nonprofit Community Can Stand Up for Itself and Really Change the World Charity Case: How the Nonprofit Community Can Stand Up for Itself and Really Change the World by Dan Pallotta
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pallotta's book is essential for anyone working in the nonprofit sector. He turns long-held beliefs and prejudices about how nonprofits should function and turns them on their heads. For a sneak preview, definitely check out his Ted Talk on charity work. Essentially, he explores issues the dreaded term, "overhead" and why there is a framing battle that nonprofits are losing (emphasizing that by using the term "nonprofit" and the ways that is understood). Pallotta points out that we lock nonprofits into situations in which they become limited to scale and make the impact that we hope they want to. However, Pallotta also shows a variety of ways that the system can be fixed.
