FUNDRAISING OVERHEAD

We encourage and support our clients in their ambitious and visionary goals. As the activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta states: it is wrong to reward non-profit organisations for their small overhead instead of the impact of their work. We agree with Dan Pallotta: frugality does not equate morality, philanthropy should be allowed to use the same resources as the for-profit sector, and charities should be encouraged to place big investments in great ideas!

Please watch Dan Pallotta’s inspirational TED Talk on why to stop the fundraising overhead discussion and start creating maximum social impact and innovation in the non-profit sector.
