“What’s important is how we use our time on this earth, not how conspicuously we give our money away. What’s important is the energy and courage we are willing to expend reversing entropy, battling cynicism, suffering and challenging mediocre minds, staring down those who would trample our dreams, taking a stand for magic, and advancing the potential of the human race.”

Nonprofit organizations in the United States are tasked with solving problems.  We do not pay taxes for the government to do this, in the US it is nonprofits.  Yet, those very organizations meant to solve problems are held to such unrealistic expectations of their overhead that very few problems get solved.  It is time for the sector to look at overhead.  What is reasonable, what can donors expect and how to make real change.  Until we tackle this problem in the sector, real magic cannot occur. ~ Dan Pallotta
