The way we think about charity is dead wrong.

While the evaluations produced by organizations like Charity Navigator have been helpful in exposing the “non-profits” that exist largely to enrich their officers, they have inadvertently put forward the perception that spending on administrative costs is somehow bad or wasteful. This thinking has kept the non-profit sector stagnant for decades as a share of the overall economy and has stifled investment in talent and long-range vision. So argues activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta in a provocative TED talk that was posted to YouTube in March 2013. I highly recommend viewing this 20-minute presentation at?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfAzi6D5FpM.
