World changers: Nonprofits taking business landscape by storm


Nonprofits exist to feed, shelter and help; but also to boost economic growth. And, they’re making a tremendous impact. According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, approximately 1.41 million nonprofits were registered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2013, the most recent numbers available.

Dr. Christina Ryder, coordinator of Go Lead: Professional Development for the Nonprofit Sector at Missouri State University, director of Community Based Research and instructor in the sociology department shares about Go Lead's programming.
