The company does not make a profit. That means they spend all of the money they receive. All the donations, all the public funds.


Why would they receive public funds and still charge people? That sounds like a scam.

No.
They are government.

Because public funding does not fully cover the cost of the services provided. Because public funding does not pay for abortions.

Non Profit just means at the end of the year you don't show any any profit after expenses are figured. You show no Profit. The money that came in equals the money you spend on employees and other expenses to run the business. There is nothing left over. But people still get paid to work there, they buy office equipment, etc.

So you're funded and know how much money you have to work with first and budget it out accordingly so it balances out.

This is where the profit is.



No it isn't. It's in the insurance companies' executives' salaries and their stock holder's dividends.


There too, good addendum.

Lets say I started a business. If I payed out all of my earnings to my workers and myself and the business broke even, would it be a non profit business?

Edited to add, could I get public funding from the government?

Sorry the topic has strayed, I didn't mean to rabbit trail into profit versus non-profit. Cash money doesn't miraculously dissolve the First Amendment (unless I'm missing something here), and the original point was through judicial power there is a control of the media and other free speech by censorship. This is the more interesting topic and the foundation of the proposed discussion. Sometimes by focusing too much on one detail we can miss the bigger picture. In short, this is about the legality of the supression order and the power of the courts to control public opinion.

So, you don't know what non-profit means either?


He said customers. Non-profits do not have customers since no one purchases anything from them.


Theater companies are often non-profit, I still have to buy a ticket to see their plays.


Where does the money go then?


It depends on the size and success of the company, a small and solvent company, it will go to paying debts. A large and solvent company, it will join the millions in the bank as a hedge against future losses.
Insolvent companies, it will go to pay administrators and actors.

Looks like the Obama created swamp will take years to drain. But it will happen if President Trump is in charge long enough.

I don't know all the accounting details on how everything works. But I worked for a Non-Profit for a while and basically they were funded privately and publicly from a variety of sources. We were paid the same as any other job that pays based on salary. Nobody worked by the hour, it was all set and established before hand.

But when we filled out our sheet to get paid, you filled in the hours you worked, which might be less or more or exactly what your hours actually were but you always filled in 40 per week. Then you had a list of funding sources that were broken down by the project and you listed all those on that paper as well. Only certain sources would fund certain projects and if you qualified for those projects that's who was funding you.

But it worked the same as any other business basically. Some jobs are just jobs internally like secretary or IT guy. But the services you provide is done not to make money but to provide "whatever" you've been funded to do.

You're not out to make money in other words. But they made plenty of money through their sources to pay for stuff, buy computers, hire people, have offices, etc. But that always balances perfectly. I always saw it as you just have to spend whatever money you bring in one way or another.

Yes. But for fully tax exempt status you need to qualify. This would allow you to accept tax deductible donations and (maybe) qualify for public funding.
