Though our shows are self-sustaining, we need grants and donations to pay our overhead. Often donors and foundations are reluctant to give for operating costs. In a recent TED talk Dan Pallotta's AIDS Ride Founder, activist, fundraiser, shared a common non-profit dilemma:
"If you can't raise more revenue, you can't grow. . . one very dangerous question . . . "What percentage of my donation goes to the cause versus overhead?" There are a lot of problems with this question. I'm going to just focus on two. First, it makes us think that overhead is a negative, that it is somehow not part of the cause. But it absolutely is, especially if it's being used for growth. Now, this idea that overhead is somehow an enemy of the cause creates this second, much larger problem, which is, it forces organizations to go without the overhead things they really need to grow in the interest of keeping overhead low.
. . . Our generation does not want its epitaph to read, "We kept charity overhead low." ... We want it to read that we changed the world . . . So the next time you're looking at a charity, don't ask about the rate of their overhead. Ask about the scale of their dreams . . .
