What's Next For N.H. Non-Profits?


What’s next for non-profits?  There’s a lot of soul searching in this field  nowadays, with some calling for a major rethinking of what it means to be “non-profit” – including adopting ideas from the for-profit world.  There’s also debate over whether we have too many non-profits and if some should merge; but others say those numbers reflect rising need, growing social problems and limited funding.
