Workshop description: 
Curious about whether developing a social enterprise would be a good venture for your church or nonprofit? Seeking an additional avenue to increase revenue?

While adding social entrepreneurship to your development approach may make a lot of sense given the changing tax system, there are other benefits as well. Earned income projects attract new groups of supporters and funders to your organization and allow current volunteers new ways to use their skills.

Join in on this presentation and discussion about:

  • when the model works best
  • the advantages
  • the challenges
  • tax-implications 
  • review some effective projects. 

Target Audience:
Administrators and Development Directors
