The Extra Mile - The Official Charity Miles Podcast

Dan Pallotta is one of my heroes.

His book, Uncharitable, dared to challenge the conventions that constrained the way we thought about charity.

His 2013 iconic TED talk has been viewed nearly 5 million times.

My first interview with him a couple of years ago is one of my favorite interviews ever.

And now he's further distilled his insights into The Everyday Philanthropist, a simple, easy-to-understand guide to help us all understand that there’s a better way to do giving.

In this interview, you'll get a small taste of what Dan is about.

It's too good to sum up here.

You'll have to listen.

And then go buy the book.

Seriously, go buy this book.  We're not getting a cut or anything.  But we need everyone to read this.

Here's the link to find it on Amazon.

Big thanks to Dan for helping us all dream bigger.

SISD #28 - The Everyday Philanthropist with Dan Pallotta

Self Improvement Daily
Episode artwork
Read more

Dan Pallotta has disrupted the non-profit sector because of one simple premise - He dared to dream big. Not only that, but he encouraged non-profits to dream big as well and get the support they deserve.

It is very difficult to understand the non-profit world at first glance, but Dan has done an excellent job helping people know how to evaluate and support different charities. He recently released a book called "The Everyday Philanthropist" that details everything you need to know about your own charitable habits, and how they interact with non-profits.

Dan is probably best known for his record setting Ted Talk "The way we think about charity is dead wrong". If you're interested in learning more about helping others through philanthropy, I highly suggest you check out Dan's work.

In this episode, I walk with Dan Pallotta in Toppsfield, Massachussetts. Dan is an entrepreneur, author and thought leader who will change the way you think about charity.

Dan founded the AIDS Rides and the first three-day cancer walks, raising over $500M for charity. His experiences led him to write three great books, including Uncharitable, How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential, which is a must-read for anyone interested in making an impact. Dan has also given two of my favorite TED talks which I highly recommend that you watch and share widely:

Dan is now the founder of the Charity Defense Council, Advertising for Humanity and the Bolder Board training initiative.  Big thanks to Dan for walking with us and encouraging us all to dream big and be bolder. #EveryMileMatters!

054: Dan Pallotta - On Convincing People

This Moved Me

I've got a special edition of This Moved Me this week! I gave a big hint about it in my weekly This Moved Me newsletter a few weeks back... so, for those who are not signed up for these emails (why aren't you signed up for these?!), let me see if I can set this up for you.
 
A few weeks ago I attended the Minneapolis Foundation's 100-year anniversary conference. They had some HUGE keynote speakers lined up - Dan Buettner from the Blue Zone project (hilarious, I'm dying to interview him), Michio Kaku - the physicist futurist (he is really something - a total entertainer) - and then our guest for today's show - Dan Pallotta, founder and president of Advertising for Humanity and the Charity Defense Council.
 
You see, Dan invented the modern-day charity event, and in doing so, raised hundreds of millions of dollars for some of the biggest causes of the day. But it wasn't an easy ride. Dan's TED Talk - one of the 100-most viewed of all time - inspires and insists on a new way of thinking about how we treat charities and nonprofits so that these organizations have a fighting chance at actually changing the world.
 
Loved our brief 15-minutes to dig into how we can convince a sometimes unwilling audience!

Free Forum Q&A: DAN PALLOTTA, CHARITY CASE: How the Non-Profit Community Can Stand Up for Itself and Really Change the World

Free Forum with Terrence McNally
Episode artwork
Read more
When someone approaches you to donate to a non-profit, how many of you want to know how much of of its money goes to salaries and fund-raising and how much goes to actual program services? If you're like most people, that question probably figures into your decision. I myself have factored that question of how much is spent on overhead into my charitable giving. But is it a valid or wise way to make such decisions? According to today's guest, DAN PALLOTTA, while it may be helpful, much more important is how well they serve their mission, how good a job they're doing solving the problems you care about. In his earlier book, UNCHARITABLE, Pallotta, who has a record of helping to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for causes, made the case that the way we think about non-profits and the rules we set for them, makes it harder for them to succeed on a truly significant scale. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses). Where other folks suggest ways to optimize performance inside the existing paradigm, UNCHARITABLE suggests that the paradigm itself is the problem and calls into question our fundamental beliefs about charity. With a new book, CHARITY CASE: How the Non-Profit community Can Stand Up for Itself and Really Change the World and in a recent very popular TED talk, he says "My goal ... is to fundamentally transform the way the public thinks about charity within 10 years."
