As a non-profit organization, Safer Foundation launched Safer Social Enterprises℠ to explore business opportunities which will enable us to achieve two primary goals 1) Create new employment opportunities for Safer clients and 2) Save money and/or generate new revenues for Safer Foundation.
The focus of the financial goal is to generate revenue that gives us greater flexibility with how it can be used. This is referred to as “Unrestricted Revenue” versus “Restricted Revenue”, which can only be used for specific program related purposes identified in a grant or donation.
