Nonprofits therefore are typically funded by donations from the private or public sector, and often have tax exempt status.
Nonprofit organizations often are charities or service organizations; they may be organized as a not-for-profit corporation or as a trust, a cooperative, or they may be purely informal.

 Nonprofit May Run Boston Wi-Fi Network - Breaking - Technology - theage.com.au
The city is considering an unusual approach to creating a citywide, low-cost wireless Internet network: putting a nonprofit organisation, rather than a private service provider, in charge of building and running the system.
Although Boston's strategy depends on the willingness of foundations and businesses to come forward with cash donations, officials believe having an existing or newly formed nonprofit in charge is the best way to ensure the project meets its civic goals and steers clear of special interests.
"We believe the nonprofit route may be the best way to bring low-cost service to every neighborhood while providing a platform for innovation unlike any in the nation," Menino said at a news conference where he received a task force's recommendations.

This is quite different from real-world organising where, more or less, supporters/volunteers act under the "controlled umbrella" of the organisation.
But the biggest job is done at an organisational level, because those who deal with this technology also have to interact very well with others in the organisation: the IT folks, the web-editors, the campaigners, the communication people and so on.
