Nonprofit organizations provide opportunities for individuals and institutions to voluntarily contribute to causes of their choosing and play an important societal role in serving as the vehicles by which philanthropy occurs.

Nonprofits act as the intermediary between donors and beneficiaries, and have an ethical obligation to ensure proper handling of funds to carry out their missions.
