Trend Report: Sector-Switching - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly

Trend Report: Sector-Switching - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly: Until recently, the boundary between for-profit and nonprofit, at least in theory and public perception, was clear. There was a distinction, codified by legal status and crystalized in a collective understanding of disparate motivations and bottom lines. The for-profit world made a profit, and the nonprofit world made a difference.

Today, that boundary has become increasingly blurred, at least in terms of discourse. The term social enterprise is bandied about with very little exactitude.
