This is the first comprehensive overview of the scope, size, composition and financing of the nonprofit, or civil society, sector in the developing as well as the developed world. It challenges many conventional beliefs about the civil society sector. It shows, for example, that this sector engages a much larger labor force than ever before imagined, even in the developing world. It shows that gifts of time are far more important to the economic and social impact of this set of institutions than are contributions of money. It also underlines the critical role that government plays in the financing of nonprofit institutions. This book will be a crucial source of information on the nonprofit sector, and essential reading for nonprofit and foundation leaders, international development agency officials, and public policy makers. It will also be a key reference tool for libraries. The data is presented in an easily accessible style, with numerous charts and tables.
