Perhaps "a charity with limited resources" is the wrong mindset to an
extent. "A charity which is not yet effective at bringing in
supporting funding given its exposure" is probably a lot more

It's true that all charities need to be wise with their spending, but
the same is also true of virtually all businesses.  I like to think of
our position as unusually 'poor' to be more of a temporary situation
which we should be attempting to cure.   Once past that hump we can
stop letting "how can we best save money" get in the way of "how can
we best perform our mission" in the situations where those two goals

I welcome off-list data on the viewer/donation and fund drive take
rate ratios of other NPOs. :)
