The purpose of this research is to develop an ideal model for managers and directors on how to effectively manage nonprofit organizations. In particular, research is done on organizations that deliver social services to the public. The research is based on the conceptual framework of five components developed by the review of scholarly literature. The components are: developing exemplary leadership, integrating nonprofit management techniques, building a structured system, connecting to the community, and implementing strategic planning. After quantitative data is collected and analyzed, findings show the opinions and insights of nonprofit leaders on what they should be doing to manage their organizations effectively. The survey research provides a basis for creating this ideal model.
