Because it is right.
- I have work in nonprofit, because a man will not take anything from this world just as he did not bring any thing into it. But we have to do something for humans.

To Change the World
- I have always felt the need to have meaning in my life. I feel that if i'm doing nothing more than lining my own pockets & taking care of my own family then what good am I too the world? As Jesus said, (paraphrased) to whom much is given, much is expected. Also, as Laura stated, People in the NP industry are generally more honest and caring. Honest with you, and honest with themselves. Which makes everyone's lives easier. It's hard work and less pay, but at the end of the day I've done SOMETHING to make a difference.

I always liked rooting for the underdog.
- I've worked in fundraising for non-profits and universities for years and one of the things I like best is the feeling that you are helping the little guy reach lofty goals. I've worked for an arts organization and an organization with an environmental focus and enjoyed the feeling that every dollar brought in the door truly counted and made a difference. For this, I have gladly taken a vow of poverty!

It's a Labor of Love
- I have been a consultant for nonprofits for nearly 25 years. I have first and foremost been drawn to the cause which equates to serving a specific population; the cause has almost always been surrounded and supported by like-minded, extraordinary people; because ultimately the work has been a labor of love not overwhelming salaries.

It's All About the People
- I have found most of the people I've worked with in the nonprofit world are just exceptional. They tend to be well educated, have varied interests, and have a set of values that includes a lot of caring about other people and what is best for the community. I have found my best friends there.
