The term nonprofit applies to an organization that is not government run or a private business. The goal of a nonprofit organization is not to make money for the owners, but rather to enhance society in some way. Nonprofits can span every cause and purpose, but are generally broken into four types of organizations:
  • Business, professional, labor, or political (for example, a chamber of commerce or a political action committee)
  • Civic and social organizations (like a parent teacher association or a veteran's association)
  • Social advocacy organizations (i.e. a homeless shelter or an environmental group)
  • Grant making and giving services (foundations devoted to raising money for health or social issues)
Nonprofit managers help an organization run smoothly and are usually centrally involved in fundraising efforts. Their duties vary depending on their specific job title, as well as the size and purpose of the nonprofit, but may include: directing daily operations of the organization, overseeing employees, reporting to a board of directors and planning and organizing activities in the community.

How to Prepare for a Career in Nonprofit Management

There are many different paths to a career as a nonprofit manager, but the right education can be a boost in your favor. Top positions in public service management often require a master's degree in an area like business or public administration, or specifically in nonprofit management. Other management positions may only require a bachelor's degree. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that overall job opportunities in the nonprofit sector will increase by 14 percent over the decade ending in 2018. Hourly wages for general managers of nonprofits ranged from $33.86 to $47.82 per hour, depending on the type of organization. Earning your nonprofit management degree can provide you with vital skills for overseeing a nonprofit organization, so don't wait to start your education today!
