Having second thoughts about accepting a job offer but I feel terrible?

Anonymous
I applied at this nonprofit that’s extremely important to me as it was something I grew up caring about through my family. They contacted me and I’ve been going through the interview process, even asking for references, which I gave (I also feel terrible about that, because I feel like I wasted my references time if I don’t take it, since my references confirmed they were contacted).

im really feeling conflicted about this. On the one hand, it would be an amazing opportunity to work there, but on the other hand it’s less money (by a couple thousand) and I’ll miss some of my coworkers (some of whom I haven’t seen in person in a year and will likely never see again if I take this opportunity). Then again, this new job ties into a personal passion of mine and that goes a long way for me. My current job has toxic elements which is part of the reason I was unhappy. I’m also stagnant and not growing, but compensated fairly well.

I also feel bad about wasting the time of an organization I truly admire. I actually already cancelled once because I was debating about whether I should stay in my job

what should I do? What would you do?
