A New Spin on an Old Topic—We want to hear your thoughts!
Many of you reading this are supporters of CURE, and may even work in the non-profit field yourselves. I encourage all of you, when you have about 15 minutes, to watch Dan Pallotta’s take on how we perceive charitable success and stewardship. I found the video fascinating and provocative, as he raises issues and concerns we face on a daily basis at CURE. Our administrative staff works very hard to ensure that 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to support epilepsy research—we know that many donors look for that type of fiscal responsibility before making a contribution. Adhering to this ultra-lean model, though, necessitates that we pass on some opportunities and initiatives, which may require larger financial support. Like most non-profits, we tend to focus on the 90 cents and not on how an investment now may pay off with higher returns in the future.
Please take a few minutes to watch Dan’s video—and then we’d really like to hear what you think! Does Dan have some valid points? Post your comments on CURE’s Facebook page!
And I wanted to share a little eye candy with you! I received this photo from Norah’s mom, Abby, and couldn’t resist posting. Norah is decked out with her CURE iPhone cover and shopping bag—irresistible!
