Putting in Your 10% Worth….

I’ve spent part of the afternoon organizing my records on foundations that might fund JRP and it’s gotten me to thinking about why nonprofits struggle so much for money. JRP is lucky to have a great board who have already raised about half of our budget for the year, but there are so many worthy organizations whose board don’t solicit donations, apply for grants or help with special events. The Judeo-Christian norm is to give 10%; what would the world be like if more people actually gave 10% of their income or net worth?
