Dan Pallotta on the gist of “Uncharitable”

This is a tribute to clear thinking about philanthropy by a Harvard Business School professor who has written a book called Uncharitable.  The  nonprofit charitable world needs more like him.

I know of institutions whose budgets for fundraising and development are so modest that there is no connection between the gifts they receive and the activity in their development offices, i.e. all that they spend is essentially “beside the point.”  This might be alright if these same institutions weren’t starving their missions for lack of resources.
