Nonprofit organizations are legally organized and registered entities whose primary purpose is to create social and public benefits. This is different from business entities, whose primary goal is to generate profits for their stakeholders or owners. Nonprofit organizations follow the non-distribution constraint requirement, where private parties and owners are not allowed to benefit from the organization’s earnings or profit directly. Non-distribution constraints make nonprofit organizations more trusted than for-profit organizations, providing low-quality services and products or defrauding consumers. Many organizations are nonprofit, including schools, churches, social clubs, political and charitable organizations. Most of these nonprofit organizations enjoy tax exemption, and others also qualify to receive tax-deductible government contributions. Nonprofit organizations generate their incomes from government funding, sponsorships from different corporations, and donations from foundations or donors.
