    I lost another non-profit account today. That is the second one in the last month that I have lost due to budget problems.

    A business with no profit cannot afford to hire an LCO.

    well established non profits sometimes have more $ than they know what to do with. of course that isn't always true, but usually they're well covered for most expenses

    they received money through the state and through approx 3 local townships. They are a great account. Usually average around $300 a month from them. Low during the season is around $150, while sometimes their invoices were around $600.

    we have a few non profits orgs. on each end of the spectrum. one that spends money with no limits and a few others who have very small budgets and tough for them to operate....
