You’ll learn that people in the nonprofit sector use people all the time to fund the salaries of its top executives (aka tokenism). It’s how they survive. Tell the stories of people, accept donations, and it funds admin costs which may or may not actually include the population their mission declares they are supposed to be serving. Just be careful. I am not a hope dasher, just a realist. I’ve worked in the sector for over 20 years, to include assisting in audits of charities that misues/embezzle funds. It’s the wild, wild, west with not much oversight. Just protect yourself B and follow your gut. All nonprofits aren’t good. All people aren’t good. All business deals aren’t fair or respectful. Follow your gut. When someone shows you who they are, believe them.
