Abstract

Nonprofit organizations are exempt from taxation specifically because they do not distribute profits to shareholders or owners. It is expected that their purpose is to benefit the public good. Nonprofit organizations rely on public trust to raise the funds needed to carryout their work and to recruit and retain board members and volunteers who can amplify their efforts.
