Nonprofit organizations are arguably the fastest growing and most dynamic part of modern market economies in democratic countries. This book explores the frontiers of knowledge at the intersection of economics and the management of nonprofit organizations. The authors review the role, structure and behavior of private, nonprofit organizations as economic entities and their participation in markets and systems of public service delivery, assess the implications of this knowledge for the efficient management of nonprofit organizations and the formulation of effective public policy, and identify cutting edge questions for future research. Chapters address five broad categories of scholarship: development and management of the diverse economic resources supporting nonprofit organizations; market behavior of nonprofits; strategic economic decision making; evaluation and performance of nonprofit organizations; and, impacts and implications of public policies affecting nonprofit organizations.
