Non-profit organizations have different priorities, needs, and challenges than their for-profit counterparts. Revenue is still important of course, but more fundamental is how the organization achieves its mission while remaining financially sound. Pleasing non-profit stakeholders can be far more complicated than delivering a profit for shareholders.
