CCSS Working Paper #6 | Lester M. Salamon.
The challenge facing the American nonprofit sector is that private charity is not compensating for reductions in federal government support of the sector. This is compounded by the sector’s new credibility problem–nonprofits are increasingly viewed by the American public as part of the problem, and not solution, to social welfare problems. Thus time is ripe for the self-renewal of the nonprofit sector.
