Not For Profit
Except for the distinguishing feature that a not for profit organizations does not distribute profits to it owners, many non-profits have much in common with for-profit organizations. For example, while some not for profit organizations use only volunteer labor, any sufficiently large non-profit is likely to require a staff of paid full-time employees, managers, and directors. Indeed, since not for profit enterprises wish to accomplish their objectives in the same way as for profit enterprises, business tactics and management techniques honed in the for-profit world often work well in not for profit organizations as well.
