Non-Profit Management: Getting Started

Need help?

Welcome to the Non Profit Management Research Guide. Use the tabs to navigate the resources. Items included here range from academic journals, industry analysis, keyword suggestions, reference materials and news sources.

What is a non profit?

A group, organization, institution or corporation formed to provide goods and/or services for a charitable, educational, religious, literary or scientific purpose. Nonprofits' assets are usually donated by companies, foundations or individuals who do not expect to be repaid. These contributions are tax deductible. If a nonprofit meets the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service's Code, section 501(c)(3), it can obtain tax-exempt status, and does not pay federal or state income taxes.

For immediate help, use one of our Ask a Librarian options. You can also contact me for appointments and one on one research consultations using the 'Email Me' button below.
