Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Managing financial resources is one of the most important responsibilities of every organization; however, the literature still cannot provide an answer to an important question: how does financial health matter to organizational mortality, especially for nonprofit organizations? To advance our knowledge in this regard, this study empirically examines the effects of solvency, profitability, margin, and liquidity on nonprofit dissolution. Higher solvency, profitability, and margin have significant effects on reducing the likelihood of nonprofit dissolution, but liquidity does not function as a significant predictor.
