A Brief Blog Profile: OneOC
by Thomas Hynes
The thinking behind OneOC is that every nonprofit is passionate. "But desire alone is rarely enough to propel an organization to achieve its goals." The thinking is that even if profit is absent from the business model, there still has to be a business model. Charity is great, but charity is even better when it's sustainable. This blog looks to help organizations balance their passion with the realities of bottom lines and expenditures.
As you might have guessed, the OC in OneOC stands for Orange County, California. It's not exactly breaking news to say that Orange County is wealthy. In fact, it's one of the wealthiest areas of the United States. It follows that there would probably be a decent amount of disposable income lying around a place like this, a significant amount which could be allocated to those less fortunate. OneOC is here to help those financial efforts reach their full potential.
There are posts on the IRS and compliance. This post points outlines what tacos (yes, tacos) can teach us about competition. And this post discusses the importance of finding the right balance with regard to executive compensation. But, also, it's not all about money. Energy, time and creativity are a big part of the nonprofit world. And as this post points out, everyone has something to give.
