This work aims to identify the prodromes of a research work on the topic of Alternative Accounting (AA) for Non-Profit Organizations (NPO) with particular regard to the meaning that value and risk assume in such organizations. The pursuit of social objectives and the absence of profit as the main management driver makes measuring their performance difficult and often imprecise, in some cases misleading. The study of alternative models for measuring and evaluating results must be carried out considering the economic subjectivity and the power relations, both in management and in reporting: this determines the risk of having to indulge non-institutional interests, distorting the underlying purposes. The elaboration of an AA model represents an attempt to overcome both the limits of traditional measurements and those of non-financial disclosure, allowing for an understanding of the different dimensions of the value created by NPOs, improving their level of accountability towards various stakeholders and being able achieve a more effective understanding of value creation processes.
Keywords: Non-profit; Alternative accounting; Accountability; Value; Risk.
