I was reading an article earlier from the site Nonprofit with Balls about how more grant money should be given without conditions. (link to be added) This actually makes me think about the idea of minimum guaranteed income. The way we currently help people with welfare, can involve so, so many bizarre rules. And takes incredible amounts of time and energy.
The amount of money that can be saved by changing the tax code to make the Donald Trumps of the world to pay taxes makes any attacks of “welfare fraud” totally ridiculous. Or of course all the sweetheart deals of the defense industry.
Seriously though, grants should be money to help organizations. Looking at an annual report or even quarterly report of expenditures should be enough to bring it to a non profit perspective.
