One sure way to fire me up is to think you can have my time for free. Like you, I am given the same amount of minutes in the day yet because of what I do, people have a perception that I have more time to give.
Short on time today, something struck me like this morning on Facebook and I wanted post about this video, this concept. Why is it a negative that someone working in nonprofit earns a decent wage? Why can’t a person earn $80,000.00 plus a year with benefits because they work for a nonprofit?
You hire for skill sets and we invest in acquiring these skills yet in the nonprofit sector, why aren’t the wages more competitive? Many nonprofits do a wonderful job and don’t abuse the organization or donor trust yet the stigmatism surrounding this is frustrating.
A challenge to you, shift your perspective.
