Associated Press Interviews Dan Pallotta

Can the new film ‘UnCharitable’ change people’s minds about “overhead” at nonprofits?

A new documentary ‘UnCharitable,’ from ‘Paris Trout’ and ‘Losing Isaiah’ director Stephen Gyllenhaal, tells the story of longtime advocate Dan Pallotta, who pioneered the idea of fundraising through bike rides and road races initially to raise money for AIDS and cancer research and treatment. Pallotta has long argued that nonprofits are unfairly pressured to cut salaries, lower operating costs and delay long term investments, which all degrade organizations’ abilities to accomplish their missions.
