  1. Hi Renee,

    I just opened up your Huffington Post article and it couldnt come at a better time! We talked about this exact subject last night in my Financial Management for Non-Profit Organizations (Jerry Rice.) I grew up with the edict that you only get what you pay for. Non-profit organizations could do so much better work if they would invest in great leadership.

    So, I wanted to say, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the article and … Kudos!

  2. YES. This post contains an essential truth: nonprofits need unrestricted gifts. I distinguish this from the idea of giving gifts for overhead. I prefer the concept that Judy McDonald suggests in this quote: “If the nonprofit is doing vital work to a make a community healthy — then why should it matter to the funder which piece of the budget they underwrite? Labeling your investment is not important. Just buy a piece of it.” Be an investor, and pick investees whose judgment, vision, and savvy you trust.
