Breaking Away from Conventional Charity: Social Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Impact
Jeff Snell, CEO, International Folk Art Alliance
Thursday, August 16th, 5:00 – 6:00pm
UNM-LA, Wallace Hall, Building 5, Room 505
Often defined as the blurring of the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, the concept of social entrepreneurship helps nonprofits think differently about their revenue streams, and set themselves up for sustainable social impact.
Our speaker Jeff Snell serves as CEO for the International Folk Art Alliance, the Santa Fe non-profit that produces the annual International Folk Art Market. The Market has worked with more than 900 artisans from around the world, generating $31 million in artist earnings to sustain local economies through social enterprise models. Throughout his career, Jeff has worked to promote social innovation across the nonprofit sector. He will discuss the ways in which this model can be effectively utilized to improve an organization’s work, and make it less dependent upon traditional fundraising.
Light refreshments will be served.
