Abstract

The voluntary supply of collective goods by nonprofit institutions has deserved little attention in the Public Choice literature, and the clasical nonprofits approach does not consider nonprofits supply as a collective decision, although individuals, either as consumers or as donors, are in the center of their theoretical constructs. In this paper we hypothesize that voluntary nonprofits' provision is a collective choice. We present a model in which the members of a community, both those who fund the nonprofits and those who do not (free riders) vote, so choosing between a political program of governmental supply and a political program of non governmental supply. Afterward, they must also decide whether a program of fiscal deductions to donations to nonprofits is applied or not. Our model shows that if there is a majority of cooperative contributors public provision is voted and a minimum percentage of cooperative contributors is required for voluntary provision.
