Looking at these numbers along with the kind of money that some ministers
are making, anyone looking for careers may want to investigate this niche
which seem to have great potential.

It is usual for all non profits to ask for contributions, which they will
be very eager to accept. But will be very protective of any questions on
the spending details and especially when it comes to compensation issues.

Those of us who are sensitive to the non profit compensation may want to
look at them before we contribute to any non profit groups.

Many believe it is best to provide charitable help directly to the needy
rather than thru intermediaries even though the intermediaries may have
very laudable aims.
