Wednesday, January 12, 2011 : Managing a nonprofit boom : Managing a nonprofit boom: "he American nonprofit sector's growth has made it equivalent to the fifth-largest economy in the world, employing almost 10 percent of the nation's workforce and 25 percent of the region's. These jobs increasingly come with livable wages and medical benefits, partly because of a growing understanding that passion does not pay the rent, put children through college, and buy health care. As the sector has expanded and become an economic engine, there has been a welcome recognition that although nonprofits are often started by people fired up by a cause, they must run like businesses if they are to be sustainable over the long haul."
