You may not know it by name, but most nonprofit organizations have fallen victim to the Overhead Myth, a misconception that spending money on administrative and fundraising costs is a bad thing. It's been confusing donors for too long about what matters when judging a nonprofit, and it is actively harming our ability to solve the world's problems.
In October 2013 VolunteerMatch hosted a special edition of the Nonprofit Insights webinar series and welcomed Jacob Harold of Guidestar and Ann Goggins Gregory of the Bridgespan Group, in conversation with Greg Baldwin of VolunteerMatch. They discussed the cultural values and past behavior of nonprofits, businesses and funders that have led to the current problem, and answer the critical question of "What now?"
Whether you work at a nonprofit or a company, changing the conversation about the overhead ratio is absolutely necessary for ensuring the health of the nonprofit sector, our communities and our world. Watch this webinar to learn what your role can and should be in ending the Overhead Myth.
