Event Navigation

If you work in, donate to or volunteer for the charitable sector, you will want to see this movie. The movie is about how the charitable sector is operating under certain limiting mindsets that are based on thinking and structures that were put in place over 400 years ago. If we can free charities from their traditional constraints and introduce a radical new way of thinking, we can truly change the world.

The film will be screened at the JRC Evans Theatre, at Brandon University on Thursday, Feb. 8, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.  Free parking in any BU lot after 4:30 p.m. The event is free but requires an RSVP. Seating is limited to 100 people.

To attend, please contact Beth at provenb2@assiniboine.net or call/text (204) 223-5708 by Feb. 6 at 4:00 p.m.

About “UnCharitable”

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.
