Social Enterprise Exploratory Committee
UCP’s Strategic Plan has exploration of a social enterprise as part of revenue diversification. Therefore, we are creating an exploratory committee to evaluate the opportunities for the creation of a social enterprise. If you have an entrepreneurial mindset and/or experience with a business start-up, this may be a perfect way for you to give back to the community.
A social enterprise is a business that aims to achieve a particular public or community mission (social, environmental, cultural, or economic), and reinvests the majority of its profits into achieving that mission. Social enterprises span the spectrum of nonprofit to for-profit entities. There are three general social enterprise models:
Opportunity Employment: organizations that employ people who have significant barriers to mainstream employment. (this is likely the direction we would go)
Transformative Products or Services: organizations that create social or environmental impact through innovative products and services.
Donate Back: organizations that contribute a portion of their profits to nonprofits that address basic unmet needs.
