Evaluating NFPs primarily on overhead ratios is misleading and distorts the impact of this diverse sector. Guidestar, Bridgespan, Charity Navigator, Wise Giving Alliance, Inside NGO, Donor Forum, and The Summit to End the Overhead Myth have been studying solutions to align perceptions created by this overhead myth and overhead caps. This session will address actions that NFPs need to collectively take to turn the tide on ever smaller overhead caps that are imposed on NFPs, which are destroying our ability to make critical investments to appropriately scale our impact to achieve our mission.
