The governance framework, nonprofit BSC, is adapted from balanced score card (BSC) which is commonly employed in private sector. Research method is based upon in-depth interview; representatives of six nonprofit organizations are intensively interviewed within one and half hours. The paper begins with clarifying the concept of "intermediary" nonprofit organizations. Then, a comparative framework and description of these organizations are illustrated on the basis of in-depth interview. The paper concludes that intermediary nonprofit organizations have to cope with four problems: customers, financial, missionary and structural dimension, in order to survive in the society.
