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, and now there is a rise in problems solvers through 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 nonprofits 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 and local examples,
• Risks and rewards of implementing social enterprise as a funding source, and
• Options for Nonprofits to engage in social enterprise activities.
