Reflections on the Voluntary Nonprofit Sector in Israel: An International Perspective

By Ralph M. Kramer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1994

This article reflects 25 years of research on the voluntary nonprofit sector in Israel, the United States, and Europe. Although there has been an explosion of interest and research on this sector in recent years, there are still large gaps in the knowledge base. However, what we do know shatters the myth of the voluntary sector's supposed advantages in service delivery of cost savings, efficiency, and high quality. It seems that it is more important how a service is delivered than by whom it is delivered and that a diversity of types of service providers is preferable to a monopoly by one sector, either government or voluntary.
