This research deals with the social representations which have the voluntary elected representatives, the directors (managers) and the public funds providers as well as in tools mobilized to evaluate it. Using interviews with these actors and starting from the theory of the social representations, the results of this study highlight the influence of the social role of the actor on his representation of the nonprofit organization performance and on tools or devices mobilized to appreciate it. She so updates three representations of the performance: political, managerial and administrative which depend, in diverse degrees, of the spheres which contribute to the formation of the social representation of the actor.
