I'd like to welcome everyone to The Greater Good - my Chicago non-profit blog. Having worked in non-profit fundraising for the past few years, I constantly hear about exciting new developments in Chicago's NP community. While the list of media outlets covering Chicago news are endless, none - to my knowledge - have a non-profit beat/blog/columnist. I will try to fill that gap. Some think non-profit news can be dry, depressing, and exceptionally unfunny (this guy begs to differ). So I'll do my best to keep things light and fluffy. And if that means posting pictures of puppies available for adoption at PAWS, then so be it.
