Read about Dan Pallotta's call to free nonprofits:
Connecting to Philanthropy: When a charity makes a profit, is your instinct to applaud or protest? (May 1, 2015)
Wisconsin Philanthropy Network is proud to provide you with the opportunity to hear his presentation discussing themes from his book, Uncharitable. The Stanford Social Innovation Review said the book, "deserves to become the nonprofit sector’s new manifesto."
The event “Uncharitable: Rethinking Nonprofits with Dan Pallotta”, will be held on Thursday, June 11, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. at the Marcus Majestic Cinema, just off of I-94 in Waukesha. Visit www.dfwonline.org/pallotta to learn more and register to attend. The registration fee includes a copy of Dan’s book, Uncharitable, a breakfast buffet and free parking.
After the morning session with Dan Pallotta, family foundations, independent foundations and private philanthropists are encouraged to stay for an afternoon of programming specifically designed just for them.
The afternoon series of educational sessions is designed to increase grantmaking impact, by continuing the conversation on assessment and solutions to nonprofit practices.
In the opening session, The National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) will share findings and measureable guidelines from their new report, The Criteria for Philanthropy at Its Best: Benchmarks to Assess and Enhance Grantmaker Impact.
NCRP is a national independent watchdog of foundations, and they argue that the report is “vitally important for innovative and rigorous self-assessment to ensure that the social sector is part of the solution to the pressing issues we face as a nation.”
This engaging session is only the beginning of the exciting educational series designed to help grantmakers further their mission and increase their grantmaking impact.
We hope family and independent foundations and private philanthropists will join us for the “Spring Symposium”, held on Thursday, June 11, 2015, beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Marcus Majestic Cinema, just off of I-94 in Waukesha. Visit www.wiphilanthropy.org to learn more about the other afternoon sessions and register to attend. Registration is complementary with the paid fee for the morning session, “Uncharitable: Rethinking Nonprofits with Dan Pallotta”.
