Social franchising is a groundbreaking concept offering nonprofit organizations the opportunity to create reliable, unrestricted wealth to support mission activities. As traditional funding sources become shallow or dry up altogether, social franchising is not only a new stream of income, it’s a Stream of Hope. Hope for sustainability. Hope for self-reliance. Hope for growth. And, most importantly, hope for the people and causes that need hope most of all.
Authored and compiled by Community Wealth Ventures, the nation’s leading consulting firm to nonprofits, and based on decades of experience with hundreds of community organizations, this publication serves as both an introduction to social franchising and a handbook for those organizations wishing to pursue this exciting concept.
