Not for Profit and Social Enterprise
Not-for-profit and social enterprises are a growing, active and important feature of Australia’s social and business eco-system, accounting for 10% of the Australian workforce, 3.9% of GDP and over 600,000 organisations.
Stokes Lawyers are proficient in establishing and advising not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises.
Not-for-profit (NFP) organizations are types of organizations that do not earn profits for its owners. All of the money earned by or donated to a not-for-profit organization is used in pursuing the organization's objectives.
A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in financial, social and environmental well-being—this may include maximizing social impact alongside profits for external shareholders.
