Funders need to change mindset on helping nonprofits

To the editor,

Thanks for your article “Philanthropy moves to help nonprofits gear for change.” [Philanthropy Journal, 7/7/05].

I know from first-hand experience how crucial it is for small nonprofits to get the kind of help you are advocating to effectively serve their communities.

I am optimistic that articles like yours from persons in positions like yours will ultimately help transform the mindset of funders regarding support for nonprofit operations.

Keep up the good work you and the Philanthropy Journal are doing.
