'The Overhead' deals with the issue of non-profit costs in a theatrical way

The Overhead, a newly launched short film deals with contentious issue of costs incurred by NGOs on their overheads in a theatrical manner. The film features an NGO worker, named Target X, who is being spied on by two detectives (named Black & Orange). The spies are intrigued to find how liberal she will be in spending the organisational funds, as they think she is on a spending spree on the personal front. The film tries to work on perceptions related to non-profit costs and public expectation that NGO workers may not even possess a middle class lifestyle.

To fill an important gap in non-profit fundraising information, Penelope Cagney and Bernard Ross, went about compiling and editing pieces contributed by leading fundraisers across the world. The result is "Global Fundraising: How the World is Changing the Rules of Philanthropy", published by AFP and Wiley.

The book covers fundraising across countries, regions and continents. Each chapter highly derives on local contributions from fundraisers in respective geographies. In other words, it is collective wisdom, which is not very often available publically in the field of fundraising.
