Every spring Jennifer McCrea runs the second on-campus week of her year-long Exponential Fundraising course at Harvard 's Kennedy School Executive Education program, and every spring since it began, with one exception, I go and give the "Uncharitable" talk. It's a spring ritual that I always look forward to. Jennifer gathers some of the most powerful figures in fundraising and philanthropy. In the past she's had the President of X PRIZE, the founder of Donor's Choose, the founder of Blue Man Group, and the daughters of Presidents. Yesterday was no different, with the Chief Fundraisers for No Kid Hungry, the Hunger Project, BoysTown, and many others present. It's a smart room - the questions are tough and smart and the commitments are big and sincere.
