Dan Pallotta

Dan Pallotta is a professional fundraiser and author of a new book, "Uncharitable," which argues that charities should be empowered to use market incentives to raise money and attract talented individuals to work for them. He founded Pallotta Team-Works, the company that invented the AIDS Rides and Breast Cancer 3-Day events, which raised over half a billion dollars and netted $305 million in nine years. The company had more than 350 full-time employees in sixteen U.S. offices and fundamentally reinvented the paradigm for special event fundraising in America. Pallotta graduated cum laude from Harvard University with a degree in development economics.
