Edu., Gov't. & Nonprofit Industry
The Non-Profit sector is comprised of tax-exempt entities that provide products and services based on their mission. Non-profit organization missions typically fall into one of several categories, such as religious, health, educational, charitable, scientific, or cruelty prevention. Non-profits use excess revenue to reinvest in their organizations, rather than allocating it to owners or members. Non-profit organizations must comply with the rules set forth in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
