Interesting Perspectives / Resources for Non-Profits

 How should we measure the success of a non-profit / charity?  

This video represents a new call for efficiency in charitable thinking and giving.

It's worth discussing why / how non-profits and charities need to evolve to tackle our society's lingering challenges...and how thinking BIG and outside the box may bring greater rewards to those we seek to serve. 

Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done.
