Jack Horak Says, “Capitalism Is Philanthropy’s True Cornerstone!”

Jack Horak says, “Capitalism is always being criticized in fundamental ways, while philanthropy generally escapes serious scrutiny.” I am juxtaposing the two this way because there is a new wave of thought about reforming capitalism that simultaneously (if unwittingly) begs as many questions about philanthropy. The new wave thought readily embraces capitalism’s ability to create wealth, but wants to spread it around more widely — not by taxation and redistribution, but at the level of corporate […]

Positive Solutions – Tell a Better Nonprofit Story!

Positive Solutions’ core philosophy reminds me of American entrepreneur, author, and humanitarian activist Dan Pallotta and his famous TED Talk that rippled through the charitable sector and had every nonprofit veteran executive nodding their heads in a resounding, “YES,” including me. It was aptly titled, “The Way We Think About Charity is Dead Wrong.” In his famous talk, Dan argued that there exists a double standard between the for-profit and non-profit sectors. Especially in the […]

Maxie Carpenter Has a New Take On Nonprofits

Maxie Carpenter and Development Systems International have a new take on nonprofit leadership.
