Episode 10 - The Overhead Myth: Let's end it once and for all!
Gordon Holley, CEO of Humanity Financial Management, joins me this month to contribute to Imagine Canada’s national efforts to put the “overhead myth” to rest. Gordon highlights recent studies that indicate strong investment in overhead will drive greater positive change in our communities. These studies directly contradict the perspective that many funders and donors continue to have that organizations should seek to spend less on overhead and more on programs and projects. Gordon offers key tips on what we can each do as leaders in the sector to end the overhead myth, once and for all!
