Is It Time for Us to Rethink How We Support Nonprofits?

Thanks to Idealist for sharing this video. It is thought-provoking and insightful, especially the discussion of nonprofits’ overhead costs:

Dan Pallotta discusses how our aversion to high overhead makes it difficult for nonprofits to fulfill their missions. He argues that because we judge the success of nonprofits by how little money they spend, we place imitations on how organizations can recruit talent, spread the word about their work, scale their impact, and ultimately solve the social issues they were created to address.
