The mission of nonprofits is to serve. Whether its changing public policy, supporting medical research or helping people in need, nonprofits play a critical role in advancing our society.
More than 1.6 million tax-exempt organizations operate in the United States, providing more than $390 billion in support of great causes.
Beyond the dollars, though, another crucial component of a successful nonprofit is advocacy. Telling the story, educating the public and changing minds are necessary to advance their goals.
