You Work Hard at Your Nonprofit Job… We Have A List of Memes to Make You Laugh!

  1. Lack of resources: staff, time, money—you name it—our nonprofit friends are very skilled at doing a lot with a little!
  2. Multiple hat wearing: every nonprofit client I work with functions far above and beyond their job title–nonprofit people are amazing masters of many tasks!
  3. Battle for funding: be it government or foundation grants, or individual donor dollars, every nonprofit out there battles every day to maintain and grow funding streams.
