Charity Defense Council

Our work aims to transform public opinion about charity, just as it's been reinvented on issues like seat belts, smoking, and gay marriage. We're committed to ending the “overhead myth,” the false idea that low overhead indicates high performance. Indeed, experts have uncovered major consequences when charities are discouraged from investing in talent, infrastructure, and fundraising.

We're launching an idea called Charity School, which will finally spark the paradigm shift the sector needs.
Our purpose is to correct misconceptions about charity and change the way people think about changing the world.
