Nonprofit Organization Definition

  • 5 min read

A nonprofit organization is an entity formed to meet a specific tax-exempt purpose aimed at benefiting the public, a specific group of individuals or the membership of the nonprofit. Nonprofit organizations are prohibited from generating revenue, but instead excess revenues are put back into the operation of the organization – they are not disseminated to owners or investors.

Many of the most familiar nonprofit organizations are 501(c)(3) charitable organizations.

Mission and Tax-Exempt Status

Nonprofits are normally organized around social causes or to serve the public good in ways that government agencies cannot. The mission statements of nonprofits are often tied to specific goals in areas like public welfare, public safety, religion, science, education, art, environmental protection or aid for the less fortunate. A nonprofit may also be created to further non-charitable pursuits like sports or hobbies. For e

What are Startup Costs?

Startup costs are (1) the expenses a business incurs before it is actually operating plus (2) the cash the business will need to pay its recurring operating expenses during the post-launch period when it is generating insufficient cash flow to cover those payables.

A Good Business Plan Is Crucial

The founders of a new business should devote significant time and effort to the preparation of detailed business plan so that the startup costs are not underestimated. A miscalculation in this area can have a variety of bad consequences:

What Is Paid-In Capital?

Paid-in capital (PIC) is the amount of capital investors have "paid in" to a corporation by purchasing shares in exchange for equity.

A paid-in capital account does not show the individual contributions of each investor, just the total amount provided by all investors.

Primary Market

The primary market is the part of the capital market that issues new securities. It is through the primary market that people invest in a corporation by purchasing stock, raising the corporation's PIC figure.

Stock purchased in the open market from other stockholders (secondary market) does not affect paid-in capital.
