Summary Not-for-profit organizations play a critical role in the American economy, but little attention is paid to the pressures and challenges that affect their governance. We know such firms don?t try to maximize profits, but what do they maximize?. The Governance of Not-for-Profit Organizations tackles that question head-on, assembling experts on the not-for-profit sector to examine the diverse and wide-ranging concerns of universities, art museums, health care providers?and even the medieval church. Contributors look at a number of different aspects of not-for-profit operations, from the problems.
