Social Enterprises

Support Michigan Non-Profits with Mission Driven Social Enterprises

A significant number of Incompass Michigan member organizations operate a variety of social enterprise businesses. These social enterprises provide services to community business partners and residents by offering goods, services, and products that generate revenue for the non-profit. The revenue is then utilized by the community organizations to fund their mission, implement new programs, and to impact social causes. In many cases, employment is provided to those receiving services to assist in developing their vocational skills and to provide an income. 

Below is a listing of the social enterprises offered by member organizations within Incompass Michigan Association. 

If you represent a member organization and would like your social enterprise added to the list please contact Member Ambassador, Joe Evans.
