Excerpts: Robert’s Rules for Non-Profits
Look at what you do. Are you a 19th-century charity or a 21st-century community corporation?
Hunter S. Thompson says, “When the going gets weird, the weird turns pro.” Some of the best things happen when the train’s moving too fast to jump off. Reward only comes with risk.
Don’t give to any organization that sets up the problem and not the solution. Remember, pity isn’t a plan.
Recognize the connection between consumption and compassion. The two are no longer mutually exclusive. Support businesses or products that show the link between profit and purpose. The way you spend your money – the power of capitalism – can ultimately decrease the need for charity in the first place.
