ARGH. 15% is nothing for a small non-profit! What is direct service and what is administrative? It all depends on how sophisticated your book keeper is, and besides, you CAN'T have the direct service WITHOUT the administrative "overhead." You pay some counselor $13 an hour, but then you have the pesky overhead of the insurance needed for your organization to provide direct service to kids, health insurance costs, electric bills, or how about the administrative support time to interface with the Board/community who make sure you don't take the money and buy a yacht, and all of those evil "non"-direct service dollars. This administrative = bad is infuriating and leads to non-profits that are underfunded and don't have capacity to give the best quality services that their participants deserve, because foundations and donors want their dollars to be "direct service" only!
What a great organization! Their website says they have a fundraiser coming up on Dec 8 at Refuge PDX. I'll be there.
omg that dog. so cute. i'm dead.
Commenty Colin-- Ms. Weddington met with Dr. Guttmacher (of Guttmacher Institute fame, when he was a doc at PP) and PP's head policy person to help prep up on this case, so PP was supporting her back in the day, too! But you're right, interests would band together now and have resources to get big name lawyers. Back in the day this was a scrappy grassroots thing. The cases now in 2013 that are grassroots are in similar, under/non-funded straights-- without large, decades old non-profits backing them-- they have scrappy grassroots non-profits who are struggling to survive backing them.
I donated $20. It's not much but it'll help. It's a shame that Providence is prioritizing politics over helping our most vulnerable, impoverished people here in Portland. Very Christ-like.
I look forward to seeing what Modi does next! Such an amazing talent won't be able to stay quiet for long. <3 Idom, the best design boutique in Portland.
