The Enterprising Non-Profits Program provides matching grants of up to $10,000 to nonprofit organizations that are exploring the development of business activities for the dual purpose of generating revenue and furthering their mission. This funding allows non profits to hire the expertise they need to test the viability of their ideas; to conduct the market research, organizational readiness and business planning activities needed to help ensure success.
The Program has been actively operating in British Columbia for over five years and has helped to launch over 65 social enterprises. The Centre for Social Innovation is working with its program partners to deliver the ENP Program in Toronto in 2009. Toronto Community Housing is a member of the ENP-Toronto funder's collaborative to start and grow social enterprises.
