“The way we’ve been taught to think about giving and charity and the nonprofit sector are actually undermining the causes we love and our profound yearning to change the world.” – Dan Pallotta, Founder, AIDS Ride and Breast Cancer 3-Day.
I found these words, spoken by Pallotta during the recent TED 2013 conference in Long Beach, California, particularly inspiring because they speak to what KULA is all about: in essence, doing well while doing good.
And he’s right. At the core of Pallotta’s presentation is the hard fact that, as a society, we’re not conditioned to think about nonprofits as businesses that can grow, so they are hobbled by an obsession with “overhead” in the wider donor community.
