Americans for Community Development is hosting its first conference exploring the intricate financial and legal aspects of the L3C with true experts in the field. As Liaison for the Media Working Group for ACD, I’ll be hosting a conversation with others in the journalism field about the possibilities of an L3C newsroom. This is an everything you ever wanted to know about L3Cs, what they are and how they relate to 501(c)3s and the whole concept of social enterprise and sustainable social change.
The L3C (Low-profit Limited Liability Company) is a hot topic in the nonprofit sector that up until now has only received minimal attention at all the nonprofit conferences and meetings. It may change the way socially beneficial services are delivered. It may represent a whole new paradigm in private public partnerships. And it may finally bring substantial amounts of market rate investment dollars into the social sector.
Americans for Community Development and The Levy Entrepreneurship Center of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University have partnered along with Supporting Sponsor Council On Foundations to present the first conference devoted exclusively to the L3C.
Do you work in the charitable sector, an economic development agency, a foundation, a government agency, social finance,
healthcare? Are you interested in how we can do more with less from government, while rebuilding our infrastructure? Is social enterprise your thing? If any answer is yes, you need to be in Evanston, Illinois June 6th and 7th, 2011.
