Food for Thought for Associations and Nonprofits



I spotted this quote in the local paper this weekend:

“Money is like manure. If you pile it up, it stinks. If you spread it out, it makes things grow.” – Peter Kleist (I also see this quote attributed to J. Paul Getty.)

It made me think of a quote from a board member 30 years ago:

“Nothing ruins a good organization like too much money. – Wilf Illingworth

In my nearly 40 years experience in associations and nonprofits, I’ve found both to be true.

What about you?
