KEY TERMS

Social Entrepreneurship - An activity that seeks a significant social or environmental impact while also earning a profit. Social entrepreneurship helps achieve organizational sustainability by lessening reliance on grants and donations.

Impact Investing - Philanthropic money, usually offered by foundations, that is invested into nonprofits and social enterprises. It can come in the form of debt, equity, or recoverable grants. However, it is NEVER in the form of a traditional grant. It is commonly used to assist with financing operations, supporting organizational growth, or starting new social enterprise activities.

Financing Resources - Includes a foundation providing low-interest loans or lines of credit, potentially at a lower cost from a traditional bank. Grants, donations, and government reimbursements are NOT considered financing resources. Rather, they are funding sources.
