Publisher's Summary

A blueprint for a national leadership movement to transform the way the public thinks about giving.
Virtually everything our society has been taught about charity is backwards. We deny the social sector the ability to grow because of our short-sighted demand that it send every short-term dollar into direct services. Yet if the sector cannot grow, it can never match the scale of our great social problems. In the face of this dilemma, the sector has remained silent, defenseless, and disorganized. In Charity Case, Pallotta proposes a visionary solution: a Charity Defense Council to re-educate the public and give charities the freedom they need to solve our most pressing social issues.

Proposes concrete steps for how a national Charity Defense Council will transform the public understanding of the humanitarian sector, including: building an anti-defamation league and legal defense for the sector, creating a massive national ongoing ad campaign to upgrade public literacy about giving, and ultimately enacting a National Civil Rights Act for Charity and Social Enterprise
From Dan Pallotta, renowned builder of social movements and inventor of the multi-day charity event industry (including the AIDS Rides and Breast Cancer 3-Days) that has cumulatively raised over $1.1 billion for critical social causes.
The hotly-anticipated follow-up to Pallotta’s groundbreaking book Uncharitable
Grounded in Pallotta’s clear vision and deep social sector experience, Charity Case is a fascinating wake-up call for fixing the culture that thwarts our charities’ ability to change the world.

Charity Case is an Apollo program for American philanthropy and the nonprofit sector. Pallotta’s understanding of the hamstrung nonprofit sector is poetic and therapeutic. His prescription is sensible and profound. Charity Case will inspire its readers with an expansive sense of possibility.” (Robert F. Kennedy Jr.)
“Dan Pallotta is a big thinker - impatient, generous, and insightful. It’s worth hearing him out.” (Seth Godin, author, Tribes)

Another great resource from Dan.

I've been a follower of Dan Pallotta for several years and also advocating many of the relevant concepts in this books here in China. We smaller independent organizations need a larger umbrella to support us through this work. Looking forward to more regional tools classified by geography rather than only valid for the US.

Great work! Really tells the critical narrative about how we need to mobilize to do good and solve crucial problems both in our

A conversation that has been a long time in commuting. We are starting to see change but so much more is still ahead. Let's inspire everyone in our communities and the government to make change happen and let the good work of humanitarian organizations make our neighborhoods, country and the world a better place. Let's all be a part of that change!
