Competitive Landscape

Demand is driven by the need to represent special interests or provide social services that can't be met by the market or government. Organizations receive nonprofit status because their primary purpose is religious, charitable, scientific, literary, or educational in nature. Their purpose must be to serve the public good versus a private interest.
