The United Way of Greater Cleveland caused a stir recently when it changed its criteria for who gets it grants. Some big names like the Red Cross were dropped. At the same time, they will now fund many new organizations. The United Way says it's now focusing on funding specific programs, not just a whole organization, but some nonprofits losing out are not pleased. We'll talk about that, plus take a look at how the nonprofit world is changing. More organizations are starting for-profit arms to fund their charitable ventures. Capitalism is no longer taboo, but is that diluting the image of the nonprofit? And, we'll take your calls.

Guests

K. Michael Benz President and CEO, United Way of Greater Cleveland

Amy McClellan Co-project director of the Cleveland Community Wealth Venture at the Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations at Case Western Reserve University.

Pat Nobili Executive Director, Achievement Centers for Children
