Australian Jewish Funders and All Things Equal are excited to invite you to a special screening of “Uncharitable”. Following Dan Pallotta’s famous TED Talk “The way we think about charity is dead wrong” and book, this documentary delves deep into how many non-profit organisations are restricted from reaching their full potential. A must-watch, it offers a new lens through which to view charity and social impact.
Join us at 6:30pm for light snacks provided by the team at ATE, before we get started at 6:45pm. The screening will be followed by an optional networking session, providing an opportunity to discuss and connect over the themes presented in the film.
After three of the most dynamic and successful U.S. charities were shut down by conservative charity watchdogs, destroying lives and cutting off precious resources, many of the top influencers in the field knew something had to be done to overhaul the nonprofit sector.
Led by Dan Pallotta, whose record-breaking TED Talk on the subject has inspired leading philanthropists and changemakers, this feature-length documentary directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal exposes the dark side of philanthropy and introduces a radical new way of giving. In a powerful call to action, Uncharitable demands that charities be freed from the traditional sackcloth-and-ashes constraints, so that they can truly change the world.
Driven by the poignant, personal stories of Dan Pallotta, Steve Nardizzi, Dorri McWhorter, Scott Harrison, Edward Norton, Darren Walker and other prominent figures in philanthropy, Uncharitable delivers an emotional journey that moves, persuades and inspires its audience to change the way we think about giving.
No topic is more crucial and timely as we confront an increasingly unstable world with the growing revelation that we are all interconnected and that our fate lies in how much we are willing to invest in positive change.
This screening is hosted by Australian Jewish Funders and All Things Equal supported by Social Enterprise Network Victoria.
We look forward to seeing you there
