    I just think it's funny because I've worked with several non-profits and they all do this.

    Not the one I work for. No title and no pay, and it's completely fine with me.

    Then you should be less shocked? That is like an OB acting shocked and complaining every time a baby comes out naked.

    The pay I get is knowing I made a difference in someone's life for the better.

    It's more like chief counsel, and can you take out the trash.

    Since you are going to be up anyway, counselor, could you come back with some coffee?

    That depends on the non-profit. Both my wife and I work for non-profits, but different types. Hers in funded almost entirely by grants, mine by the product we produce. The pay at both is commensurate with what it would be if we worked at for profits. Both in salary and benfits.
    If you don't know the way, you shouldn't be going there.

    There is plenty of $ in NP work. You just need to know the right people and organizations.
