Non-Profit Organizations

Non-profit organizations are corporations or associations that are in business to do work for the general public and without a profit motive. They do not pay income taxes on the money earned through donations and fundraising. Examples of non-profits are churches, hospitals, and educational facilities.

Individuals who work in non-profit organizations tend to value the social good aspect of their work.

Skills in fundraising, development, communications, business, and legal management can lead to rewarding work in a non-profit organization.
