Non-profit organization (NPO) is an organization that uses its revenues and surpluses in order to fund other projects instead of giving them to shareholders as dividends. Other names for NPO include not-for-profit organization, nonprofit, non-commercial organization and NCO.  An NPO is allowed to generate profit and surpluses; however instead of distributing it to its shareholders in the form of  dividends and payouts, as is permitted with an NGO (Non Government Organisation), it must use this for purposes such as self-preservation, expansion, or plans.

Dictionary.com defines, ‘NPO’ as “A corporation or an association that conducts business for the benefit of the general public without shareholders and without a profit motive.”
