This paper examines the role of knowledge management (KM) in not-for-profit organisations (NFPs). NFPs are essential in developing sustainable communities (Scarso 2008) providing many social, environmental, health and human services required by a vast amount of communities’ stakeholders. With limited research related to KM in an NFP setting, this paper advances knowledge and offers a unique view of KM from the perspective of 32 NFP stakeholders. Using in-depth interviewing, this paper explores the definition of knowledge in the organisation, the importance of knowledge planning, capture and diffusion; and offers recommendations for the development of sustainable knowledge management practice and development from the internal not-for-profit stakeholder perspective.
