This paper explores the question of to what degree is autonomy necessary to nonprofit organizations and its stakeholders? As a means or as an end? Where is it expressed? What can account for its variation? Answers to these questions will affect personal and institutional decisions, both for givers and receivers of philanthropy, within the unique context of the United States. To better understand autonomy, it is necessary to examine its development historically as well as theoretically, so that we can then critically evaluate hot it should relate to philanthropy, especially in nonprofit organizations.
