Non-profit more into cash flow in running the business and its impact to environment such as social impact measurement. Profit more into managing the growth of sales vs growth of cost to measure net income based on financial statement, and of course, keeping up with cash flow is also important.

As simple answer i would say, non-profit are not required to generate cashflow and make profits. For profit business is required to make profits, generate cashflow and when we have a public company, pay dividends or conduct stock buybacks.
