Dan Pallotta is a leading expert in social entrepreneurship and social change marketing. He combined his passion for social change and his marketing skills to create the multi-day charitable fundraising event category. Inventor of the AIDSRides and Breast Cancer 3-Days, and chief architect of the bold advertising and marketing that made them so successful, he is directly responsible for raising over half a billion dollars for AIDS and breast cancer. His ideas are now used on dozens of multiday charitable events around the world that have raised in excess of a billion dollars in new money for important causes.

Dan is a 1983 graduate of Harvard University. He was elected to the school board in Melrose, Massachusetts at the age of twenty. He is a founding member of the UCLA AIDS Eradication Projects. He has received Brandweek’s “Best Cause-Related Event” Award, the Creative Vision Award from Liberty Hill Foundation, the Humanitarian of the Year award from Triangle, and the International Citizen of the Year award award from Albany State University. He is the author of "When Your Moment Comes," and "Uncharitable," from Tufts University Press, which has received wide acclaim in 2009, including reviews in the New York Times, The Economist, and The Stanford Social Innovation Review, which said it “deserves to be the nonprofit sector’s new manifesto.” He has spoken at Harvard Stanford, USC, UCLA, the University of Oregon, and Tufts, among others, and is a William Jefferson Clinton Distinguished Lecturer. He is a weekly contributor to the Harvard Business Review online.
