Non-profit organizations are businesses/institutions that are dedicated to promoting a particular social cause or advocating for a shared point of view. It’s called “non-profit” because the people involved don’t receive any of the income-- it goes towards the cause they are promoting. NPOs are trustworthy, honest, and open to everyone; the more they focus on their mission, the more public confidence they have, and thus more money they have to help their organization.
