As the development of society is continued and lays a great impact on society, nonprofit organizations are also under this influence and are prompted to change and grow vigorously. According to Henry Mintzberg, he believes that change is not single-factor directed. It is not a simple linear process. It is a complex process with intricate relations. Accordingly, change in organizations can be depicted as a system of moving cycles [1]. At present nonprofit organizations are facing a series of reforms which is an irresistible trend. However, the nonprofit organizations are surrounded by barriers which impede their development. This article will analyze the factors which hinder the advance of nonprofit organizations. Within organizations, internal reasons mainly include the restriction of ideas, institutional systems and inadequate resources. External reasons mainly include the restriction of system and government.
