What About Board Giving

Vu Le of Nonprofit AF often writes humorous pieces about the trials and tribulations of nonprofit work. In a recent essay, Why We Need to Drop the Idea of 100% Board Giving,” he offers several reasons for the case against it, among them, “It reinforces the value of money above all other contributions,” “It keeps boards from diversifying,” and “It…prevents more meaningful engagement.” Vu received lots of responses to his arguments, many not in agreement, which led to a meaningful and thought provoking conversation.
