A not-for-profit website generally represents an organization that is registered as a not-for-profit or educational entity.
For the purpose of this course, the focus is on websites whose URL ends with .gov, .org or .edu. However, be careful when selecting websites to use as resources in your research.
Even though a site may represent a not-for-profit organization, they may still have an agenda or a bias with the intent to sway your opinion. Treat websites with the same careful evaluation as you would other resources.
