I was shocked at the posh gatherings..

My sister, who is an attorney and does pro bono work for a charity organization, explained that to me in a way that almost makes sense. When a person that makes $1000000+ a year makes a donation, it tends to be much more sizable than someone who makes 70000+ a year. A charity wants to attract those people, so they have to have offices that those people can feel confident coming to or sitting in. The various events have to have a certain standard of presentation so that the wealthier people are comfortable and thus more likely to open their wallets. In other words, they cater to the rich to get their fattier donations. Obviously it helps that it makes it a lot comfortable of a workspace...I am not playing that off at all...rather just pointing out that there is a purpose to it. I may have a terrific charity for sick kids, but if the office is located in east downtown Oakland, the neighboring building is a crack house, and the closest thing to a parking lot I have is curbside meters....that isn't going to attract the people that can afford to give the most.
