Summary

Peter Frumkin clarifies the debate over the nonprofit sector's privileged position in America by examining how nonprofits deliver needed services, promote civic engagement, express values and faith, and channel entrepreneurial impulses. He argues that the long-term challenges facing nonprofit organizations will only be solved when they achieve greater balance among these four central functions.
