Yes, you CAN get paid to work for a nonprofit - There are just a few catches. #Nonprofit #Nonprofits

Whether you’re starting a nonprofit and wondering how you’ll make a living, or interested in nonprofits as a job or career opportunity, receiving a salary working for a nonprofit is a mysterious prospect to many.
