Abstract:Recent corporate scandals in the USA forced regulatory change and brought the governance dialogue to new heights and domains. In an attempt to strengthen understanding of the role of governance in the nonprofit organisational setting, this manuscript reviews theoretical directions and practical approaches to corporate governance and discusses the applicability of these factors to nonprofit organisations. Instead of examining inter‐organisational relationships, the focus is on the governance dimensions that inform stakeholders of the general operations and performance of nonprofits. It is relevant to developed countries where there is a strong presence of nonprofit organisations operating.
