Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses). In this bold talk, he says: Let's change the way we think about changing the world.

Everything the donating public has been taught about giving is dysfunctional, says AIDS Ride founder Dan Pallotta. He aims to transform the way society thinks about charity and giving and change.

Come join us on Tuesday October 8th from 6:00-8:00 for a Global Cafe to discuss Promoting Partnerships: What can be achieved when public, private and civil society sector organizations collaborate. Thank you to our panelists for sharing their expertise on this important topic.

Registration for the PROMOTING PARTNERSHIP upcoming global cafe:

Promoting Partnerships: What can be achieved when public, private and civil society sector organizations collaborate.

Global Café
School of Public Service
DePaul University
8 October 2013
6:00 – 8:00 pm
Dublin Room, 16th floor
14 E. Jackson Blvd, Chicago

The world is facing increasingly severe crises due to poverty, water scarcity, lack of sanitation, wars, environmental disasters, refugee and migrant flows, emerging diseases,  lack of education, domestic violence, gender inequality, and the list goes on.   Each of these issues is too large for just one sector to solve independently and requires greater collaboration between public, private and civil society organizations. 

The issue of public-private partnerships, and more important the topic of multi-sector partnerships are highlighted in our cross-sector analysis course in the School of Public Service. They are also the reality of most projects and initiatives in public, private and nongovernmental works at local, national and international level.

This seminar presents outstanding examples of successful collaboration.  Speakers will discuss the concepts, mechanics and outcomes of their work.  The seminar will be moderated by Susan Ross, CEO of SR Consulting.  She has worked with CARE, USAID and other organizations in building partnerships and is the author of Expanding the Pie: Fostering Effective Non-Profit and Corporate Partnerships.

You will find these conversation stimulating and quite relevant to your studies and careers. Join us in person or online.

It is clear that no matter where you look United States, Greece, Africa or Spain, the current systems are not working in terms of providing jobs, access to quality services such as health and education or stable environment. The way forward requires new paradigms that harness collective solutions and maximize the strengths of different sectors – non-profits, social enterprises, corporations and governments and other entities– are required to address the complex problems faced by the world today. In EXPANDING THE PIE, Susan Rae Ross offers new approaches that can be beneficial to businesses as well as society, thus, expanding the pie for everyone.
