“When we think about raising wages, we think that’s a good thing, but the question is: How do these things get paid for,” says Sheila Bravo, CEO of the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement. “The tricky thing for nonprofits is that our revenue does not come from selling things. Our options of how do you offset the increased costs are a little more complicated than when you have a widget or service that you can sell.”

Homeless shelters, she pointed out, don’t charge people who use them, so there’s no revenue stream at all there.
