“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” George Washington Carver

What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.

WHAT WE VALUE >

“We cannot arrive at a healthy economic process unless, in the first place, it is made possible for people to have something to give and, in the second place, unless they have the goodwill and intelligence to give what they have.”

December 2011

It’s hard to believe that we’re approaching the end of another year. This is always a reflective time of year, and we invite you to consider the Infinite Value of Giving this holiday season. Plus check out some amazing work in Food & Agriculture with new borrower, Crown O’Maine and Seed Fund grantee, The Pfeiffer Center. Also, if you were unable to attend the Rudolf Steiner Festival (one of the highlights of our year), you might be interested in listening to these audio recordings of the panelist discussions!

The Infinite Value of Giving

We spend a lot of time talking about the investing and lending part of our work.  This time of year, we like to turn our attention to giving, the third pillar of our work with money.  This season, we give thanks and give of ourselves.

The workshop was designed by Emerging Practicioners in Philathropy (EPIP) a group I’ve recently become more involved with as a Steering Committee member.  The workshop, titled “Philanthropology 3.0”, is part of EPIP’s new Philanthropology™ Program, a grantmaker education series.  The day’s curriculum focused on power dynamics and spurred thoughtful discussion and ideas among the 20 participants in attendance…Read the full post on the Reimagine Money blog.

New Loan Supports Local Food in Maine

We are thrilled to announce a new loan to Crown O’Maine (COM), the leading distributor of local organic products in the state of Maine.  Serving Maine since 1995, the company’s mission is to support small scale family farmers, fishers, and artisans.  Crown O’Maine offers a collection of locally produced foods through local buying clubs, restaurants, and neighborhood establishments…Read the full post in the RSF newsroom.

Sharing Biodynamic Practices at The Pfieffer Center

As the standards for organic certification are increasingly called into question, the conversation about sustainable food and agriculture is frequently turning to biodynamics, making the work of 2011 RSF Seed Fund grantee The Pfeiffer Center even more important. Located in Chestnut Ridge, NY, the Pfeiffer Center seeks to teach and spread awareness of the biodynamic method…Read the full post on the Reimagine Money blog.

Forbes’ Impact 30 List

Social enterprise is continuing to garner attention and praise among mainstream business and financial audiences. For the first time, Forbes’ has released its list of the Top 30 Social Entrepreneurs.

We are excited to see many familiar faces on this list. Leadership from RSF borrowers B Lab and New Leaf Paper, as well Root Capital which is an investment from our Donor Advised Fund Impact Investing program, are among the organizations recognized. It is encouraging to see that this type of work is not going unnoticed. We look forward to continuing to watch this story unfold as more people become aware of the power of social enterprise and as more inspiring leaders apply their entrepreneurial talents to solve pressing social and environmental problems.

Congratulations to all of the organizations recognized!
