We have 3 categories of spenders:

1.Households (except for buying first-hands houses, all their expenditures are counted as consumption)

2.Firms (all their expedintures are counted as investments)

3.The State (All its expedintures are counted as government expidentures)

Non-government non-profit organization also spend their money, but they don't seem to belong to any of these categories.



To find non-profit organizations (non-government) expenditures within the national accounts for GDP you can visit the BEA site (www.bea.gov) and go to the national accounts table 1.13.

non-profit organizations is listed as Nonprofit institutions serving households (line # 49). To attempt to answer your question it would fall between firms and households but more under households.
