White Paper

Is it Time for Your Nonprofit to Partner Up with a For-Profit in a Joint Venture?


In the U.S., there is now a greater emphasis on social enterprise. Consumers want to know that a for-profit company will have a positive impact on the environment. Research studies indicate that 92 percent of Americans had a positive perception of companies that were dedicated to supporting charitable organizations in 2011. In 2001, only 81 percent of Americans positively viewed a company that made efforts to donate to charitable causes. A joint venture is one legal instrument that can facilitate a for-profit company's charitable contributions. This white paper will address the legal requirements that must be fulfilled to create a joint venture and put forth the numerous advantages associated with a joint venture.
