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?
