The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) defines nonprofit organizations as entities that possess the following characteristics not typically found in business enterprises:
-- They receive contributions of significant resources from resource providers who do not expect a commensurate or proportionate monetary return.
-- They operate for purposes other than to make a profit.
-- There is an absence of ownership interests like those of business enterprises.
