This study is motivated by the need to identify suitable accountability mechanisms for non-profit organizations (Unerman et al. 2006), amidst growing calls for greater accountability by these organizations (Gray et al. 2006). Non-profit organizations increasingly adopt private sector concepts of accountability, including the preparation of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)-compliant financial reports. However, by definition and unlike commercial organizations, non-profit organizations are not established as profit-making ventures (ibid). This raises important questions concerning the relevance and purpose of financial reports, as well as broader issues surrounding the applicability of business practices in the non-profit sector (Goddard et al. 2006).
