    Die Forschung zu Non-Profit Governance bezieht sich dominant auf den Vorstand einer Non-Profit-Organisation (NPO). Dabei spielen weit mehr Akteure eine Rolle fuer die Governance einer NPO. Dieser Beitrag befasst sich auf der Grundlage des Institutionellen Isomorphismus mit der Bedeutung des Dachverbandes als Gover-nance-Instrument der Mitgliederorganisationen. In Abhaengigkeit von der Autonomie der Mitgliederorganisationen und der Umfeldstabilitaet wird idealtypisch aufgezeigt, wie die Mitgliedschaft im Dachverband Anpassungsprozesse foerdert und welche Entwicklungspfade dadurch ermoeglicht werden. (Research on nonprofit governance is dominantly focused on the board, although other constituents play important roles, as well. This piece of work uses the framework of institutional isomorphism to discuss the role of an umbrella foundation as a governance instrument for its member organizations. Based on the autonomy of the members and the stability of the environment as decisive factors, four ideal type influences of the umbrella organization on changes in the governance system are presented.)
