The nonprofit sector offers opportunities that provide a strong sense of doing something meaningful, and making a difference. Often they provide benefits that are not always offered by corporations or government. Many nonprofit organizations encourage diversity more than the private sector, making working conditions more desirable for people of color, women, people with disabilities, seniors, and LGBT persons. Non-profit organizations are great in number. An alphabetical list of selected websites are located on the Social Responsibility website.
