What is a not-for-profit (NFP) organisation?
NFP organisations exist for a purpose other than to make a profit and are very different from government and business. Common types of NFP organisations include: associations (professional or trade), charities, churches, sporting clubs, cooperatives, foundations, environmental groups, schools, societies, NGOs (non-government organisations) and trade unions. You may also hear the NFP sector referred to as the “Third Sector” or the “Community Sector”.
According to Australian Bureau of Statistics data released in July 2014, the 58,000 active NFPs in Australia employ over one million people, turn over more than $107 billion, have $175 billion in assets and contribute around 4 per cent to GDP. The sector has grown 40 per cent in six years, outperforming most industry sectors [source].
