Not many cities get an opportunity to get a chance to put in a bid for their country. Boston was one of the lucky few who the Unites States Olympic Committee decided they were going to potentially make a bid with. What they found out was that Boston could not generate enough support for the Olympics there. The people who played a big part in this were the people who actually knew the repercussions of what the Olympics would mean and nonprofits. The residents of Boston used nonprofits as a tool to get garner support from other residents. Nonprofits help focus the concerns of the knowledgeable to the unaware.
