A Generosity of Thought

In this absolutely inspiring TED Talk, activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta challenges us to change the way we think about changing the world. Pallotta, founder of AIDS Ride discusses questions of impact, spending, overheads and effectiveness. Is a program’s fundraising effort more effective when its overheads are low or when it raises more capital for the program? By shifting our focus from the slice of the pie to the size of the pie, he forces us to ┬áre-negotiate our attitude towards working in and donating to the non-profit sector.
