11 AM “Let’s Talk” Nonprofit funding and the ethical dilemma faced by organizations, especially in the arts. Museums, galleries, opera companies, etc. receive huge donations from wealthy donors and corporate foundations. The equivalent to the Rockefellers and Carnegies of the past are now the Koch Brothers and the Gates. Should a nonprofit accept any money that will make enable it to do its noble work? Should it take the ‘high road’ and refuse funds that pose a conflict of interest, because of where the money came from and where a lot more of it is being spent? Please call in to 415-663-8492 or 8317 to join the discussion.
