Jon Pratt, ’77 alum and Executive Director of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, is quoted in Minnesota Public Radio about the need for nonprofits to diversify their revenue sources.

"There's often not a perfect match between the funding available and what an organization wants to do, which is kind of the existential dilemma for these organizations," said Jon Pratt.

Pratt said it's common for multi-service organizations like Centro Campesino to constantly adjust their services or programs based on funding changes. But he worries when funders require organizations to meet the donor's goals to receive money.

"We want these organizations to be independent centers of initiative and creativity and that it's local people making the decisions," Pratt said. "And when funders are adding requirements and even prohibiting activities, that's something we really don't like to see."
