Question: How can I find information on non-profit organizations?


“Nonprofit” and not-for-profit are often used interchangeably. Neither entity makes a profit, however, both are regulated differently from companies that do make a profit and both are tax exempt. Despite the similarities, there are subtle differences.

Go to the Virtual Business Library's Company & Financial Information section for links to useful resources including links to the following suggested resource: 

Foundation Directory Online (A foundation is a legal category of a nonprofit organization)

GuideStar, the National Database for Nonprofit Organizations

You may also want to consult the NYU Guide, Business Analytics (MSBA) Strategic Capstone: Non-Profit which includes a list of resources available for research on Non-Profits.
