“Overhead” and charitable giving: think twice!

I had the opportunity to write about a topic that has been on my mind for many years now, both as a BoardSource Certified Governance Trainer as well as being the co-leader of a charitable organization: the “war on overhead” that has been afflicting charities for much of the past decade. You can download this issue of The Lens (an initiative of the Gateway Association) directly from http://bzbz.ca/TheLensOverhead or check out all of the issues (and sign up for future editions) at http://gatewayassociation.ca/lens/ I would be very interested in your feedback about my article and whether or not it changed your views about the role of overhead in assessing the performance of charitable organizations!
