What does “not for profit” mean?
What it means is that the entity, as separate from all of the people running it, does not hold on to earnings. They can accumulate assets for large program expenditures, but the organization as an entity doesn’t pay out profits. Most people who work for not-for-profits earn normal or even smaller salaries compared to private profit industry. It’s a job like any other, only the company they work for happens to not pay income tax (even though every employee does.)
