Unconditional Service: Robin Morgan’s Non-profit Mission

I was raised to be, not a servant, but a person who is willing to serve unconditionally.   And the good Lord didn’t put you here to just make money, to just be a family.   He put you here to leave a legacy.

And that can be knowledge, that can be money, that can be service. To me, it’s service.  The more [people] I can connect with, the more people I can connect.   I thrive on that!”

“A lot of non-profits hit the middle stage of growth – and the vexing growing pains which go with it . . . Some organizations grow to this stage, suffer growing pains, and then get stuck! They reach a plateau, a middle stage plateau, and stay stuck there. They never move forward. Some non-profits, however, do move forward.”
