Nonprofit Organizations

A nonprofit organization is a corporation

which obtains tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service

to promote its mission for public benefit.  

They can collect more money than they spend, 

but the excess is not "profit" which benefits owners or investors.

It must be used to further the organization's mission.

Charities are only one of the 57 types of nonprofits recognized by the IRS.
