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 keep the blog going. Because new posts are published on Mondays, I would lose whole Sundays writing, missing out on spending time with my kids. I am an executive director of a nonprofit in Seattle, so I asked my board to drop my position (and salary) down by 20%, so I could write one day a week and spend time with my family on the weekends.

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.

I'll remove all random ads from Nonprofit AF. They're annoying! But they pay for the vegan ice cream and bars of dark chocolate I need each month to write the posts.

(The display ads that are on the right side will remain.)
