The problem with many non-profit organizations is that they changed from advocacy and charity to feeding troughs for the professional advocacy bureaucrats.
Their incentives are misaligned with their mission because organizational functionaries and leadership are incentivized by the publicity they garner, the funds they attract and the social points they score rather than the success of their mission.
The goals of advocacy are ill-defined.
The criteria by which success is assessed is often vague and not aligned with the mission.
