Social Enterprise

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Main
Computer Lab

The concept has become increasingly common in the past three decades as a result of a combination of government funding cuts to social programs. Other factors promoting the growth of social enterprise include growing nonprofit recognition of the importance of eared income to enabling their organizations to use independently generated revenue to support programs that make sense for their communities, build community wealth, and directly improve the job skills of people facing barriers to entry in the workplace. How can your nonprofit begin or build its social enterprise into a healthy bottom line?
