Annotation: The value of nonprofit organizations in complementing government and business organizations to address social problems is reviewed.
Abstract: Voluntary and nonprofit organizations link closely with government organizations, businesses and corporations, community and neighborhood organizations, and families in dealing with a wide range of contemporary social problems. Nonprofit organizations resemble government organizations in that they have a public or at least a collective mission. They resemble business organizations in that they must raise enough funds to cover their operating costs. The work of nonprofit organizations is most important and valuable when it reinforces the community, recognizes both regulation and social reform, seeks to develop genuine partnerships, begins to pervade corporate and government structures, enhances social justice, and demonstrates good leadership and effective management. Human resource management in nonprofit organizations is discussed in terms of strategic planning, management roles, leadership, and volunteer management. Financial management issues are also detailed. References.
