What can happen when governments fund nonprofits to perform their charitable work; the case of Catholic Charities in Illinois gives a negative example: it struggles to shore up a $25M loss.

"An upcoming fundraiser is being counted on by Catholic Charities to help fill the gap left by $25 million owed the agency by the state and to keep serving impoverished Cook and Lake County residents.

"Despite the Illinois budget impasse delaying more than $25 million in statewide funding to Catholic Charities, officials at the agency said this month they are determined to continue serving more than one million vulnerable and impoverished residents living in Cook and Lake counties."--Karen Ann Cullotta, the Chicago Tribune
