Is your organization asking the right questions and making the right decisions to truly realize your potential?

Join entrepreneur and activist Dan Pallotta — the author of Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential and The Everyday Philanthropist — as he leads a conversation about how non-profits can fully realize their potential in a charitable landscape that is ripe for innovation. Dan will share with us how removing barriers on the non-profit sector will lead to a world where our most pressing social problems can be solved.

This is the fourth in a series of speakers discussing transformative leadership in the non-profit community. The Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations is committed to building the social justice muscle needed to transform the non-profit community. Our ongoing Transformative Thinkers Series explores how alternative systems of knowledge might be used to reimagine how we structure and run our organizations.


Dan Pallotta is an activist, humanitarian, author, and builder of movements. He is a pioneer in the national effort to transform the way our culture evaluates the character and impact of nonprofit organizations. His iconic 2013 TED Talk on philanthropy has been viewed more than five million times.

He is the author of Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential, the best-selling title in the history of Tufts University Press. The Stanford Social Innovation Review said that the book “deserves to become the nonprofit sector ’s new manifesto.” His newest book is The Everyday Philanthropist: A Better Way to Make a Better World, a field guide for the average person who wants their life to matter. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has described his approach as “An Apollo program for American philanthropy and the nonprofit sector.”

Dan has given over four hundred talks on philanthropy and innovation in thirty-eight states and ten countries.
