Motivation in Non-Profit Organizations

I'm having difficulties finding a theory to help me research motivation, and the importance of it, in a non-profit organization. Could someone please give me some advice for the best possible theory? Thanks so much!

NPO Motivation

I think the best motivator for a NPO would be a goal setting motivator. Allow the workers or managers themselves to set specific daily and weekly goals and watch the employees be more inclined to reach those goals than with any other tactic.

Motivation and Primary School Teachers

I am investigating the intrinsic factors that motivate teachers. Working with teachers on a daily basis I have come to realise that they spend so much time and energy to ensure that children are happy at school and learn that the driving force must be more than the pay. Can anyone help with this investigation, maybe with some questions to include in a questionnaire? Thank you..
