We talk to six leaders of local nonprofits about the challenges they face and whether we need to rethink how we think about charities. The game is giving and The Game is on. Welcome to the Game. Even in good times, nonprofits struggle to raise funds to meet the needs of those they serve, a challenge that grows exponentially more difficult in hard times. Why do some social problems persist? Why can’t homelessness or hunger be wiped out? And are we unfair to nonprofits – do we expect them to succeed like a business but operate as though they have taken a vow of poverty? We have assembled a team of executives from the Peninsula’s most respected, most effective and most important nonprofits to discuss the issues they face raising money, meeting the needs of those most in need and trying to change the social dynamic they face.moreless
