Charities are like any other actors in society, opportunities arise and they should be considered. Some will be discarded and others will be pursued. For charities though, the evaluation of opportunities must be made with the additional consideration of the constraints placed upon charities from normal economic operation. One interesting opportunity which lucky charities face now and again are large, and often unexpected, gifts in kind.
