Reimagining the Nonprofit Sector as a Commons – Advancing Innovation & Social

February 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST

Through a provocative presentation and discussion, we will explore the historical, legal, and political basis for re-framing the nonprofit sector as a public commons and nonprofit organizations as commons managers. This understanding of the nonprofit sector grounds an analysis of how the nonprofit, for-profit, and government sectors can work together to advance social impact goals. We will present key questions, benefits/drawbacks, and other decision-drivers for social entrepreneurs to consider in determining whether to work under for-profit, nonprofit, or blended models. The presentation will include some basics on what defines non-profit vs. for-profit, and the relative strengths and weaknesses of both sectors in supporting social impact outcomes.
