Pol 361 Week 2 Word = Important term word= Important idea word= Example Recap from last week Non-Profit: Contested arena between the state and the market where public and private concerns meet and where individual social efforts are united. What distinct this sector -Operates more in the private sphere -No formal property rights -Rooted in volunteerism 501c3 are the most common. -Two kinds of 501c3s: Public and private -Public: Receive funds from government or donors -Private also has two kinds: Operating and non-operating (This was looked at in last week’s notes) 501c4 / 527 -501c4 – Advocacy Organizations -Social welfare groups -Don’t have to disclose donors -limit lobbying to 40% ` -Can lobby if related to the mission -Ex. Crossroads GPS -527 – Super PACs -Donor list exposed -Unlimited amount of contribution from most entities -Created to permit the collection of funds for policy activity. -Ex. Right to Rise USA Terminology -Economic Capital: Refers to a financial resource -Cultural Capital: Social assets like education -Social Capital: Resources that typically produce public goods for common good -Pluralistic Theory: Several agencies trying to fill a particular need -Civil Society: The role of the state and the market relative to that of citizens and society. Non-Profits and the moral High Ground -It is a common misconception that Non Profits depend on free choice and demand nothing. This is not always true. For example, mandated community service is a case where there is not free choice involved. Another example would be that; an anti-smoking super PAC is going to demand that a presidential candidate speak out on smoking before they give their endorsement. Why Liberals may support Non-Profits -The nonprofit could bring together a group of socially committed individuals -Seen as an ideal and untainted partner to the government -More diverse populations to support and work with. Why Conservatives may support Non-Profits -Alternate to government spending -Increases individual’s choice -Support moral/ spiritual component of service -Community innovation in solving issues Why both parties may not support Non-Profits -Mission doesn’t align with values -Too much controversy around the subject -Role of the Family -Market Driven Dimensions of Non-Profits Demands: Non-Profits as a means to address social demands, unmet needs Supply: Social entrepreneurs bring forward their own agenda, which may not mean a current community need. The four Functions DEMAND SUPPLY Instrumental Rational Service Delivery Social Entrepreneurship Expressive Rational Civil and Political Values and Faith engagement Non-Profits as the “tent” Public Service Charities Member Serving Organizations Grass Roots Informational Organizations Grass Roots -Significant amount of public change -Especially when dealing with AIDS/ HIV and Civil Rightd -Ex.
