At JVA Consulting:
- The number one issue our clients approach us about is sustainability.
- The most popular blogs are the ones focused on funding.
- Our most popular training workshops are those focused on fundraising and earned income.
In my never-ending search for what’s new in raising capital for social enterprises, I was struck to learn about The Thrust Fund, a group of young social entrepreneurs who are willing to give up to 6% of their lifetime earnings for current investments in them (as opposed to a specific enterprise) by investors they are calling “thrust funders.”
Will be looking into this more and am interested in finding out from our NonprofitStreet readers: What have you done to launch your nonprofit venture? Social enterprise? Would you make a similar trade? What do you think of this idea?
Please comment or send me an email directly, and we’ll be in touch.
