Publisher Comments:

A $1.3 trillion industry, the US nonprofit sector is the world's seventh largest economy. From art museums and university hospitals to think tanks and church charities, over 1.5 million organizations of staggering diversity share the tax-exempt 501(c)(3) designation, if little else. Many social justice organizations have joined this world, often blunting political goals to satisfy government and foundation mandates. But as funding shrinks and government surveillance rises, activists often find it difficult to imagine movement-building outside the nonprofit model.

The Revolution Will Not Be Funded gathers original essays by radical activists from around the globe who are critically rethinking the long-term consequences of this investment. Together with educators and nonprofit staff they finally name the "nonprofit industrial complex"and ask hard questions:

  • How did politics shape the birth of the nonprofit model?
  • How does 501(c)(3) status allow the state to co-opt political movements?
  • Has the professionalization of movement-building turned activists into careerists?
  • How do we fund the movement outside this complex?

Urgent and visionary, The Revolution Will Not Be Funded is an unbeholden expose of the "nonprofit industrial complex"and its quietly devastating role in managing dissent.

Review:

"Andrea Smith has no fear." Ruthie Gilmore

Synopsis:

Fund and destroy: the Non-Profit Industrial Complex.

Daniel Bonner, September 7, 2009 (view all comments by Daniel Bonner)
I worked in a corporate foundation for a decade. Without doubt it hewed to the wishes of the powerful banker who was then CEO. The banker was and is a dedicated one-worlder. A man of the Left. So I can vouch for the lively concerns of the women at INCITE. But I recall that, many years ago, Henry Ford II was revolted by the leftist tilt of the Ford Foundation and quit the board. Other foundations like Pew, Gates, Rockefeller and many, many others, behave free of their corporate progenitors. Maybe they are not as vehement in their dedication to radical reform, but they certainly sound very much like they'd be supporters of INCITE. That said, I applaud INCITE for wanting to steer clear of sponsored foundations. I'd like to hear more from INCITE as the group progresses.
