Overview

This text is the first to dedicate itself to the nonprofit sector.

  • What are nonprofit and voluntary organizations?
  • What is the history of the nonprofit sector?
  • What is the scale and structure of the nonprofit sector?
  • How can we explain the existence and behaviour of nonprofit organizations?
  • How do nonprofits obtain funding and how do they manage resources?
