Social Business Model
A social business operates in the same way as any other business, with the operating, administrative, and marketing costs associated with running a successful enterprise.
However, instead of generating profits for owners or shareholders, the revenue from a social business directly funds charitable initiatives.
UWVC Recycling is a “green” social business enterprise, in which we collect donations of gently-used clothing and household goods for reuse and recycling. We generate revenue by selling the items we collect to reuse retailers.
This represents a stand alone source of revenue that is self-funded and self-reliant — a resource that would not otherwise exist for our veterans.
This revenue we earn, combined with our traditional fundraising campaigns and sponsorship opportunities, helps support our work for veterans and the organizations that serve them.
