This study aims to determine trends in nonprofit organizations (NPOs) engaged in rural activities. By interviewing the members of six NPOs in Suzu city, Ishikawa prefecture, and analyzing their financial data, this paper examines the factors related to the sustainability of these NPOs’activities. The results showed that certain activists concurrently served as board members of multiple NPOs. Moreover, the government’s employment-boosting program played an important part in providing financial support to some NPOs.
