This is insane and irresponsible; any organization with this much
activity and financial throughput not run as a business (in terms of
professionalism), specifically INCLUDING real charities, is insane.

The charities and nonprofits I know of all enthusiastically hire
professional business people to do business stuff... because it's how
you get things done at that level.
