This infographic visually represents our broad definitions of the social sector and its infrastructure. These definitions reflect their diversity, scope, and impact. We hope our definition and framework will inspire future research, as well as inform the way we think about, talk about, and support the social sector and its infrastructure. To learn how we developed these definitions, please read our report, The Social Sector Infrastructure: Defining and Understanding the Concept. To explore our definitions further, please visit our feature, Exploring the Social Sector Infrastructure.  This publication is part of a larger project on the social sector infrastructure.
