Profit and Non-profit organizations make up the core of American business culture and charitable services. Nonprofits organizations like The American Kidney depend on donations and grants from individuals, government supplements, and corporations. For profit organizations like The Dallas Opera depends on revenue from sales and contributions to meet the needs of their mission. While they are able to earn a profit, more accurately called a surplus; such earnings must be retained by the organization for its future provision of programs and services. Earnings may not benefit individuals or stake-holders. Underlying many effective nonprofit endeavors is a commitment to management.

Looking ahead, the following are some of the issues and challenges that the sector will face.
