Not For Profit does NOT mean Not Without Benefit

Ok, so there are a lot of organizations that call themselves NFP (Not For Profits). However, this much has to be made clear: Not for profit does NOT mean Not Without Benefits.

In every organization, there are people who benefit by holding position of power. Even though these people may not take a salary or money, they benefit by holding the positions they hold, and the power of networks and influence that these positions bring with them.

Using that power of influence, there are benefits possible. Association with NFPs also helps bring in good will. That goodwill is leveraged by businesses.

There are many ways to skin a cat, and Not For Profit is one way used by some intelligent or cunning people.

(Disclaimer: I am not discrediting NFPs. But am saying that fraud is possible).
