Faulty mindset

The financial difficulty that the August Wilson Center for African American Culture is facing (“August Wilson Center laying off staff,” May 11 and TribLIVE.com) is another fine example of a nonprofit mindset: “Let's build this, build that, fund that; let's get grant money, taxpayer money, etc., everything but our money; more where that came from, don't worry about it.”

What was wrong with buying an old warehouse and creating the center there? Oh, wait — business people think like that, nonprofit people don't.
