The mission of Nonprofit Policy Forum (NPF) is to serve as an international journal that publishes original research and analysis on public policy issues and the public policy process critical to the work of nonprofit organizations. NPF provides a forum and an authoritative and accessible source of information for scholars, leaders, and policy-makers worldwide. A primary goal of NPF is to provide nonprofit leaders and policy-makers with readily accessible and relevant scholarly research. In addition to being an accessible source of information, NPF creates a publishing venue for the expanding population of nonprofit-public policy scholars. Because the field of nonprofit studies is interdisciplinary in nature, the range of disciplines for both authors and readers spans a wide array of interests. Increasingly, the global community recognizes that progress in achieving goals and solving serious social and economic problems will require more than government action alone. The people employed in the sector and the millions of volunteers it mobilizes have the ability to extend the government's reach, engage grass-roots energies, build cross-sector partnerships and reinvigorate democratic governance. The intent of NPF is to help policymakers design more effective policy, stimulate greater public involvement and support, promote more favorable policies, and thereby increase the contribution that nonprofits make in addressing social, economic and environmental problems and enhancing democratic practice.
