What is nonprofit Social Enterprise?
Nonprofit social enterprises are nonprofit organizations that sell a product or service that directly addresses a social need. They're nonprofits that advance their social mission through market-based strategies.
They work to address unmet community needs and support the nonprofit's mission, while creating the potential for funding from earned income - they combine their social purpose with business strategies to maximize their impact.
Purpose + Business = Impact
Our Social Enterprise Network
MACC's work in social enterprise grew out of our members' desire to explore social enterprise's potential as a driver of economic opportunity and source of sustainable funding.
Together our members created MACC's Social Enterprise Network, a powerful collaborative platform of shared resources, expertise, and learning. A platform to create new possibilities for our members to grow their social ventures and maximize their community impact.
Our goal is to create a Social Enterprise development ecosystem as a path for our members to invest in their financial sustainability and create economic opportunity in their communities.
