Applying the Business Model to Nonprofits


We are so lucky to have interns and employees who think critically about the world and the interconnections that exist. Below is a quote from Ted about why he decided to join UniversalGiving!

“I’ve been interested in social entrepreneurship  for several years. The idea of using business principles to achieve social good was instantly appealing to me. When I heard Pamela Hawley speak at Duke University, I could tell that’s what she was all about—running a nonprofit like a business to make an impact. I especially appreciated UniversalGiving’s hybrid business model. UniversalGiving is a nonprofit website funded via donations and earned income from UniversalGiving Corporate. As a socially minded, tech savvy individual, UG seemed like a place I’d want to be.”
