Vast but Invisible
Nonprofit America is one of the least understood segments of national life, but one of the most crucial. Encompassing multi-million dollar health complexes and far larger numbers of small operations with annual budgets of less than $25,000, nonprofit organizations are a diverse collection of private institutions that mobilize individual initiative for the common good. They deliver much of the hospital care, higher education, social services, cultural entertainment, social welfare, and emergency aid services available in our country. They also give expression to a wide variety of artistic, religious, cultural, ethnic, social, and recreational impulses that add richness to community life.
