Nonprofit Organizations gave us a good overview of what sort of nonprofits exist and emphasized that the “…nonprofit sector is now a major economic and social force at the local, national, and international levels.” (Anheier, 12) Finally, Alexis Tocqueville expanded on how the nonprofit sector is a huge influence on our nation and what consequences there are because of its power.
