The article presents the author's views on the characteristics of the collaboration and professionalization of public sector funding for nonprofit organizations in the U.S. He states that organizations are expanding their focus on efficiency, sustainability, and accountability as nonprofit sector emerges quickly. He argues that there are changes in public agencies such as adopting public management and raising stewardship-based contracting approaches. The author reasons out that standard management strategies for reaching mission have been becoming largely significant in getting government grants and contracts based from the 200 interviews with leaders of nonprofit organization in the San Francisco Bay Area. Also discussed are the opportunities and challenges of public-nonprofit relations.
