About Nonprofit AF

Hi, this is Vu, the guy behind NonprofitAF.com. NAF is a blog that discusses the fun and frustrations of working within the nonprofit sector. Nonprofits and nonprofit professionals are pretty amazing. But we face a bunch of challenges. For instance, no one really understands our work. We are like air: All around, but usually invisible and unappreciated until we're needed or we're gone. And of course, there's the Overhead Myth, and funding dynamics, and comparisons to for-profits, and some of us have to deal with mice at our office. 

It takes me 6 to 10 hours to research and write each post. I love writing, but it does take time and money to do it. Thanks for being a patron and keeping it going. Here are a few popular posts: 

Anything related to nonprofit work is fair game to be discussed on NAF, but there is a slant toward equity, including the challenges faced by leaders and organizations of color. And I like to use different ways to talk about complex topics, including pop culture, pictures of baby animals, and references to Kenny Loggins and Foreigner.
