The agency’s financial plight stems from a failed capital campaign. The agency hoped to raise $2.5 million, mainly to cover the 2002 purchase of it [sic] headquarters at East 29th Street and Prospect Avenue. But the campaign raised only $660,000.
So…a million and a half at least to house 15 employees, in a town where office space is going begging? What’s up with that? When a non-profit starts to worry about image instead of service, that’s when it dies.
What’s a real hoot is that after less than an hour and 8 comments, the Pee Dealer closed their comments down. I guess they were afraid of where the argument was going. All I’ll say is that we’ve had 92 years of the Urban League, and Cleveland is just as poor as ever.
