Social Enterprise Readiness Assessment for nonprofits

LaSalle helps nonprofits with social enterprise

For the foreseeable future, unrestricted funds will continue to be the Holy Grail for nonprofits. Thus, nonprofits all need to pursue every viable source of funding available in order to be financially stable and sustainable.

One of the evolving paths to this goal is social enterprise. Essential to the success of any potential new program or activity is an organization’s ability to take on what it entails. This is particularly true with social enterprise, as it is likely to be a new and unexplored territory.

The Nonprofit Center at LaSalle University is offering a two-hour Social Enterprise Readiness Assessment session for a limited number of nonprofits. With an understanding of what social enterprise is and what is required, participants will complete this assessment that looks at the key elements needed to be in place before embarking on a social enterprise project. Participants will walk away knowing their areas of strength, those that need additional work, and whether social enterprise is a good fit for your organization.

Executive directors, board members and other senior staff are invited to participate in this program that will determine if you are neglecting a potential opportunity for a new funding stream, or jumping in before you are ready. Participation must include at least two people in these categories, with a maximum of four.

The readiness workshop will take place on October 1st from 9-11am at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust St., Philadelphia. The fee is $10 per person (minimum 2, maximum 4), which must be paid at time of registration and cancellation policies apply.
