In 1982, Paul Newman founded Newman’s Own, a for-profit corporation created to sell food products and donate 100% of the profits to charity. What started as a boutique operation has grown into an international business with over $350 million in revenues. Many people consider Paul Newman to be one of the original pioneers in the area of social enterprise, which involves the application of business strategies to achieve social purposes. The social enterprise model has become increasingly popular and successful over the past few decades, and foundations can benefit by using social enterprise as a funding source.

During this workshop, our speakers will cover the following aspects of social enterprise:

•Introduction to the concept of social enterprise with real-world examples
•Risks and rewards of implementing social enterprise as a funding source
•Cause-related marketing, sponsorships, and joint ventures
•Unrelated business income tax issues and loss of exempt status
