Description - The State of Nonprofit America by Lester M. Salamon
The thousands of organizations that comprise America's private non-profit sector represent a national treasure. Yet serious pressures are altering the playing field on which non-profits operate, and many are responding in ways that may undermine their popular support. Salamon, a leading authority on the non-profit sector, has joined forces with other experts and the Aspen Institute to produce this volume, an integrated assessment of the state of non-profit America and the key trends affecting its evolution. It is organized into three sections. The first summarizes critical trends and issues; the second examines each of the sector's major subsectors; and the third focuses on major cross-cutting trends and issues. This is intended as a sourcebook for sector leaders, the press, public officials and citizens concerned about the future of America's non-profit sector and eager to understand the forces affecting it.
