Why Nonprofits Should Run Like Businesses
Nonprofits are changing lives across the world, and we have a responsibility to continue thinking of ways to excel — to grow and become the best at what we do. But real change can only be accomplished if we modify the way we think about how nonprofits should "invest" their resources while making a mark for themselves. Let's not limit the scale of their dreams; instead, let's help them obtain the resources they'll need to get there. Becoming generous and open-minded donors is the key to changing what surrounds you and, ultimately, the world.
