    Various Supersites With Nonprofit-Specific Information

    The following sources provide a wide range of articles in regard
    to nonprofit organizations. Remember that the vast majority of
    nonprofit management practices also apply to for-profits. For-profits
    focus on generating profit and nonprofits on meeting a need in
    society; however, many nonprofits have to pay very close attention
    to the financial bottom line, as much as for-profits. Some differences
    are that nonprofits attend specifically to fundraising to donors,
    manage volunteers, and engage in public policy and lobbying (although
    many for-profits also engage in public policy and lobbying).
