Some Information About Non-Profits and Overhead Costs

We all have concerns about how our money is being spent by the organizations that we contribute to. After all, it is our hard earned money and we want to makes sure that our donations are being used in a manner that is consistent with our beliefs, interests and desires. The act of determining who is spending your money in an appropriate way isn’t as simple as comparing the management costs vs the program costs and donating to the one with a higher percentage going to the programs and less to payroll and various other activities.

Below you will find some guidance from three of the major resources in the nonprofit world in regards to how a donor should look at the overhead an organization might be dealing with. Please, read on with an open mind and then look at our GuideStar profile and consider a small donation.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

9 June 1922 – 11 December 1941

Today is the anniversary of this young man’s death. He was a flyer with both American and British citizenship that went to fight for his mother’s home country. He was killed in a simple accident  but not before composing a beautiful piece of poetry that is loved by aviators everywhere. 
High Flight

 “Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth

of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,

I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air….
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue

I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.

Where never lark, or even eagle flew —

And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

– Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.”

John Gillespie Magee Jr.
