This text is the first to dedicate itself to the nonprofit sector. It provides a comprehensive overview of nonprofit and voluntary organizations, nongovernmental organizations, philanthropic foundations and civil society institutions. Taking an international perspective, Nonprofit Organizations details the background and concepts behind these organizations and examines the theory, management and policy which informs them. Questions answered include: * 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? The pedagogical features of the book include review questions, case studies and chapter summaries. Nonprofit Organizations: Theory, Management, Policy is an invaluable core textbook for higher level undergraduate and masters students interested in nonprofit and voluntary organisations, as well as being of great interest to those practising in the nonprofit sector.
