Abstract

Funders increasingly concerned about organizational effectiveness of grantees. Yet, major funders frequently fail to fund administrative or infrastructure costs at levels that would permit grantees to be effective. Such anomalies frequently imply existence of systemic structures. Theory building may identify potential high- leverage interventions.

Keywords: overhead aversion, overhead costs, nonprofit organizations, administrative costs, donations, fundraising management
