Various Supersites With Information for Nonprofits

The following sources provide a wide range of articles in regard to nonprofit organizations. Remember that the vast majority of nonprofit management practices also apply to for-profits. For-profits focus on generating profit and nonprofits on meeting a need in society; however, many nonprofits have to pay very close attention to the financial bottom line, as much as for-profits. Some differences are that nonprofits attend specifically to fundraising to donors, manage volunteers, and engage in public policy and lobbying (although many for-profits also engage in public policy and lobbying).
