CCSS Working Paper #10 | Helmut K. Anheier, Stefan Toepler, and S. Wojciech Sokolowski.
What can be termed the “state-dependency thesis” argues that nonprofit organizations are increasingly becoming bureaucratic and “state-oriented,” the more they depend on government funding for their operations. The paper analyzes a sample survey of West German nonprofit organizations to test this thesis. Results suggest that the state-dependency thesis should play less of a role in theoretical understanding of nonprofit organizations.
