Benefit Corporations – What Every Fundraiser Needs to Know About Them

May 18, 2012

 An education session hosted by the AFP DC Advanced Executives Committee

Benefit Corporations - What Every Fundraiser Needs to 
Know About Them

An exploration of the new social benefit corporations; what they are, how they work, and how they can be important allies in advancing our missions.

The AFP DC Advanced Executives Committee invites area nonprofit executives to a session presented by Amy Kincaid, Founder and Principal of ChangeMatters, and Laura E. Jordan, Esq., Managing Partner of The Capital Law Firm.  

Ms. Kincaid is Founder and Principal of ChangeMatters, Benefit LLC, a social enterprise consultancy that works with both tax-exempt social enterprises and socially-responsible businesses. The first Benefit Company formed in the State of Maryland and in the United States, ChangeMatters provides strategy, planning, funding, social media, and philanthropy services at critical points of growth, turnaround, and renewal, and is recognized as an organizer and educator in the movement to encourage “common good enterprise.”

Ms. Jordan incorporated the first Benefit Corporation in the United States.  Her work with Benefit Corporations, a new class of for-profit corporation whose social benefit purpose is central to its existence, has been featured in The Washington Post, on the BBC, and in numerous other media outlets.  

The Benefit Corporation voluntarily meets higher standards of corporate purpose, accountability, and transparency, and is the most comprehensive yet flexible legal entity devised to address the needs of social entrepreneurs, investors, and the general public.  Benefit Corporations are best suited to the sustainable business movement, impact investing, and the social enterprise sectors.
