Nonprofits trade in shareholders for stakeholders and pass on the value of the assets they build to society. It’s an honorable way to serve the community. But starting a nonprofit is not the only way to create social value. Before investing the time and energy needed to organize a nonprofit start-up, you’ll want to make sure that a charitable corporate structure is the best structure for what you want to achieve, that what you want to achieve matches what the community wants to fund, and that you have access to the necessary intangible assets — like subject matter expertise and industry knowledge — to succeed in this space. If you have an idea that you think will create social value and you’re not sure how to bring it to life, let us help.
