Getting it Right Up Front: Legal Options and Issues for Nonprofits Structuring Social Enterprises
Social enterprises and social entrepreneurs are breaking down the old distinction between the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, bringing together the passion and drive to “do good “ which is rooted in the charitable sector with the discipline of business and the power of the marketplace emanating from for-profit business models.
Legal structures are still evolving to address the needs of these organizations, but Gray Plant Mooty brings the deep understanding of nonprofits and tax-exempt organizations together with the business acumen and agility that come from serving entrepreneurial businesses, that are necessary to serve this dynamic and growing sector.
