In the recent past, economic analysis of the voluntary nonprofit sector has become a fertile subfield of professional study. The contributors to this volume, focusing on the relationship between organizational form, market structure, and firm behavior, discuss the complex motivations of donors, customers, and managers. The first half of the book presents a variety of conceptual approaches currently used for modeling the behavior of the nonprofit firm. The second half suggests how economic analyses can enlighten discourse on a series of policy issues, including the charitable deduction, government grants to nonprofits, the regulation of fundraising, and nonprofit exemption from the corporate income tax.
