After three of the most dynamic and successful U.S. charities were shut down by conservative charity watchdogs, ruining lives and cutting off precious resources from those in desperate need, many 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 documentary 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 philanthropists, 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.


Followed by a panel featuring Community Environmental Council CEO, Sigrid Wright, producer of the film, Meredith Blake, Executive Director of the Santa Barbara Education Foundation, Pedro Paz, and CEO of Northern Santa Barbara County United Way, Eddie Taylor. Moderated by Geoff Green.
