One Response to “What’s the difference between nonprofit and not-for-profit?”

  1. Jonathan,
    Bruce Hopkins in 650 Essential Nonprofit Law Questions answered takes a different perspective (Q1:4). He writes:
    “the law uses the term not-for-profit to apply to an activity rather than an entity. For example, the federal tax law denies business expense deductions for expenditures that are for a non-for-profit activity. Basically, this type of activity… is essentially a hobby.”

    I’m wondering how you would respond to his interpretation?
