Nonprofits and business:toward a subfield of nonprofit studies

Harris, Margaret (2012). Nonprofits and business:toward a subfield of nonprofit studies. Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, 41 (5), pp. 892-902.

Abstract

Although the field of nonprofit studies now encompasses a substantial body of literature on the relationship between governmental and nonprofit organizations, the relationship between the business and nonprofit sectors has been less addressed by specialist nonprofit scholars. This Research Note aims to encourage further studies by nonprofit scholars of the business-nonprofit sector relationship. It looks at descriptive evidence to date, proposes a tentative resource-based framework for understanding how nonprofits and business relate to each other in practice and suggests some initial directions for developing a subfield within nonprofit studies.
