Why the reality of philanthropy confounds me.

  1. Al, thanks for the shout-out and kind words. I think you're absolutely right that, in general, most donors don't practice what we preach. A major problem is that most organizations, not wanting to hurt their chances of getting funding, don't ask hard questions or point out donors' hypocracies. I hope you and Jay continue to ask tough questions of donors.

    And another advantage of bootstrapping is that you focus your energy on those you serve rather than those that fund you.
