It really depends on you and your motivations. Both have the potential for good pay and job security, but nonprofit jobs tend to have a lower maximum pay scale than private companies, especially if you look at management positions. However, if the nonprofit supports a cause that is really important to you, then the lower pay scale might not be a big factor for you. Also look at the benefits that each job offers, as this could also influence your decision.
