A non-profit organization, also known as an NPO, is an entity that funnels any surplus funds back into the operation of the organization, rather than distributing that surplus to owners or investors. The focus of a not for profit entity is to provide services to one or more sectors of the populace, rather than to generate wealth. There are a number of different types of operations that are classified as non-profit organizations, including charities, religious organizations, trade unions, and associations that provide support to individuals suffering with different types of diseases.
