Abstract: What sustains a nonprofit mission of sustainability? This exploratory study uses a Triple Bottom Line approach to understand the correlates of organizational effectiveness in the nonprofit U.S. eco-tourism market. We begin by reviewing both the concept of sustainability and the adaptation of Triple Bottom Line accountability in the nonprofit sustainability sector. We next empirically test our hypotheses using a population of 103 U.S. “eco-tourism” nonprofits, identified through Guidestar. We then analyze predictors of organizational and market sustainability.

"Governing Public-Nonprofit Partnerships When Nonprofits Become the Major Funder: A Comparative Case Study of Government-Nonprofit Partnerships in City Parks." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ARNOVA's 46th Annual Conference, Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Nov 14, 2017 <Not Available>. 2019-08-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1283931_index.html>

Abstract: This study investigates why different forms of government-nonprofit partnerships emerge and how they are governed in different ways. Data come from interviews with the leaders of 10 government-nonprofit partnerships for city parks in major cities of the Ohio River Basin Region and content analysis of these partnership agreements. Ostrom’s Design Principles are used to provide an overarching framework for understanding governance across government and nonprofit sectors, which contribute to theory building in the areas of cross-sectoral collaboration – particularly because much of the scholarship in these fields assumes a single direction of funding flows from government to nonprofit organizations.

3. Zook, Sandy. and Bawole, Justice Nyigmah. "Applying Benefits Theory of Nonprofit Finance Internationally: An Analysis of Nonprofit Revenue Portfolios in Ghana" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ARNOVA's 46th Annual Conference, Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, Grand Rapids, Michigan, <Not Available>. 2019-08-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1284933_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Benefits theory of nonprofit finance asserts that nonprofit revenue portfolios are based on the organization’s mission and nature of services provided (Young 2007). Thus far, application of benefits theory is limited to Western contexts. However, there are important differences between developed and developing economies in financial resource availability. This paper uses financial statement of nonprofits registered in Ghana to explore the utility of benefits theory in this context. We find that benefits theory provides a useful construct, but there are important differences in revenue sources for public good provision. The paper concludes with propositions and future directions.

4. Jang, Hee Soun., Sun, Jingran. and Valero, Jesus. "Exploring Factors Affecting Nonprofit Commercialization: Does a Competition Affect Nonprofits’ Commercialization?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ARNOVA's 46th Annual Conference, Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Nov 14, 2017 <Not Available>. 2019-08-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1284850_index.html>

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: The commercialization of nonprofit sectors have been extensively studied, a few issues, nonetheless, remain unaddressed. Although resource dependency theory and competition are considered two primary mechanisms that explain the commercialization, the former only offers a limited explanation and the latter was not tested with proper measurement. This study explores two research questions by using NCCS nonprofit finance data: 1) To what extent are NPOs commercialized, and 2) what factors affecting nonprofit’s commercial activities? The purpose of research is to offer a more comprehensive model, by examining resource dependency theory, and competition among social services nonprofit sectors with more generalizable data.
