Being identified as a nonprofit, doesn’t necessarily mean it will be a charitable organization. Though the term has been applied to most nonprofit organizations, the fact is most nonprofits is structured using the economic model. The economic model is based on the traditional model of management designed to deal with the complexity of managing an organization (Bradshaw & Hayday, 2007, p. 4). This model acquires funding from multiple sources such as; individuals, government grants, corporations, and foundations. Though an nonprofit organizations may be identified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as tax-exempt, it may use the same economic model and framework as a for-profit organization. According to Brainard & Siplon, (2004), the nonprofit economic model often mimics that of the private sector by using organized professionals to help determine the goals and vision of the organization (p. 439). It is widely believed that most nonprofits use the economic model along with an aggressive...
To stay on the JMU cheer team or to quit was a very hard decision that I had to make this past month. Knowing I had leadership responsibilities as a third year veteran on the team made this decision extremely difficult for me. I had to consider all the parties involved which consisted of myself, my teammates, and my coaches. Several factors fell into play when deciding what was best not only myself but for my team as well. The first and most important factor I had to consider was my physical health as I have back problems that requires annual back procedures in order to be able to cheer. A relatively new factor in my decision making progress was the hiring of the new JMU cheer coach, which was extremely difficult for the upperclassmen to adjust to. My last few personal factors that played a role in my decision consisted of getting a job and focusing more on my school work. Next I had to consider what was best for the cheer team. I knew as an upperclassmen I needed to support the cheer program to help keep it strong and consistent during the coaching transition. This was hard to do when several other upper classmen were quitting the team due to this change. I also knew I had a responsibility to teach the incoming freshman new skills the same way the juniors and seniors taught me when I was a freshman. Not only did my team need me but I also took into consideration the contract I signed when making the team my freshman year. After taking everything into consideration
Nonprofit organizations were established by settlers long before there was a fixed government. The early public-serving organizations were considered charitable. Volunteers often worked together to open and operate orphanages, shelters, food pantries, hospitals and fire departments (Arnsberger, 2015). Nonprofits are vital to all communities. They serve to fill a void in society not readily fixable by government (Hadden, 1987). Without nonprofits the human services sector would be overwhelmed and unable to meet the critical needs of its most vulnerable people.
There are different challenges a non-profit organization face, although I believe that those same challenges are faced on for profit organization either at the same level or very similar. Trust is an issue that both non-profit and for profit organizations will encounter at some point in their business and therefore they would need to be as transparent as possible. Transparency entitles you to provide clear statements of where your money goes, how it is utilized in your organization, and how it is making your organization accomplish their goals. It is not the only thing that is necessary to make the stakeholders, other business, employees or anyone interested in other business to trust in your organization. For a non-profit organization trust is a key element to engage volunteers, donors and other business; without trust chances are that the organization might fail to achieve their mission. Trust is acquire by performing the goals you have set for your mission and not deviating from it, at least not too far from achieving the organizations goals either for non-profit or for profit organization. It is also important to have a plan (Taylor-Hamm) in case there is a catastrophic event that might jeopardize your organization, it will help you foresee adverse situations and you will be better prepared in case your first plan fails.
Throughout Dan Pallotta’s TED Talk he argues that the discrimination against nonprofits is limiting their ability to change the world. He believes that nonprofits operate under one rule book, while for-profits operate under another. And the book for-profits are encouraged to operate under, allows them to attract the best talent, spend money to make money, take risks, pay dividends, and take their time returning profits to investors.
Samantha Ureno Professor Zia English 99 22 January 2016 The Science Behind Sports Authority “Nothing in a grocery store is where it is by accident. Every item on a shelf has been planned” (Paco Underhill). In the articles, “The Science of Shopping” by Malcolm Gladwell and “How Target Knows What You Want Before You Do” by Charles Duhigg, these authors exemplify effective marketing strategies which were composed by Paco Underhill and Andrew Pole.

Nonprofit organizations provide socially desirable services without the intention of realizing a profit. They have no ownerships shares that can be sold or traded by individuals, and any excess revenues over expenses is used to enlarge the service capability of the organization. They are financed, at least partially, by taxes, contributions, grants and/or state contracts.
1. When it comes to problem solving, non-profit organizations is less concerned with the cost of a solution than a for profit organization.
First of all, the Nonprofit Sector has proven to be a positive part of the US economy. Nonprofits hire a large number of employees. These nonprofit employees have access to long-term employment, and benefits just like the for-profit employees. By hiring a large number of employees, nonprofits have an active part in being an economic stimulator.
College football has become big business. With the CEO’s of the universities, oops I mean “Presidents and Deans” bringing in the big money. It’s a genius idea really. They bring in millions of dollars each year and do not have to pay their employees, so it’s a hundred percent profit. Yes, they say they pay their players by giving them the value of a free education. How free is it? Not just on Saturdays but every day of the week the players but their own personal safety, emotional state, and life on the line. Half the time don’t even have time to go to the classes, but it’s okay the school clears them or sets up classes that are just on paper. Don’t even have time to eat somedays. Have to constantly deal with scrutiny from the media and student body. Even Scrutiny from the NCAA, because oh no you took $100 from your uncle to eat that week. Get trotted around by their somewhat respected school like a walking billboard. I have seen all of this first hand as I played college football for two years. It's been brought up time and time again. The majority of coaches think it's a great idea, I mean most coaches bring in million plus dollar contracts. That’s beside the point though. The NCAA still balks every time at the idea because it would cut into their profit margin and the lining of their own damn pockets. So, with boosters and agents running rampant giving players exactly what they want, the issue is no longer a question. Pay the players now.
Back in my prime days I was the “big man on campus” but before I got there I had to start from the bottom. When I first started playing football I wasn’t a beast right away in fact I could barely run a lap around a track, I was that fat kid in the back huffing and puffing for some air looking like I was about to collapse. But I never quit I worked and hard and kept at it, kept grinding and the improvements I saw were tremendously drastic. The disappointment that fueled this drastic improvements was getting cut from junior varsity. Going into the 9th grade that summer I tried out for junior varsity with the mentality that I would automatically make it, I was sadly mistaken, I made it all the way the finals cuts and the coach called me into his office to tell me that I had been cut down to freshman.
Increasingly, not-for-profit organisations have taken to emulating the moneymaking practices of corporations. This trend has three primary causes: the decrease in funding from the public sector, the increase in competition for funds among an expanding number of not-for-profit organisations and the rise in funder pressure for not-for-profit organisati...
Nonprofit and for-profit businesses have multiple similarities and differences. For-profit organizations are very different from non-profit organizations because the driving goal of a for-profit organization is increasing its revenue whereas a non-profit organization will not go out of business if it suffers financial loss or does not have a bottom-line. The marketing process also differs, with the biggest differentiating factor of profit marketing is to encourage customers to buy and while the nonprofit marketing purpose is usually to encourage people to give. This means that the return on investment differs between the two. Although the principles of marketing remain the same, some of the methods must, of necessity, be different. Because of the intense involvement in the community as well as support from government, agencies non-profit firms should not compete in the same markets as for profit companies nor in anyway position their organization in any way to give the impression that their efforts could be commercial based (Nelson, 2002).
It was a gloomy day, Hurricane Hermine blew past Greenville leaving behind scattered puddles across campus as well as lingering clouds blocking most of the sunlight. The air was cool yet there was a certain electricity present that made that day feel less dreary. It was the first home college football game, East Carolina University was going to play against Western Carolina University. The two institutions haven’t played each other since 1981 and it was sure to be an interesting match up, football season was back in full swing and this match would define the success to come for the home team.
