Did you know that social profit agencies are a vital part of our economy?
According to new studies, social profit agencies not only do good for their respective communities, but they also provide many jobs and economic activity. According to Learning To Give, 1.2 million organizations are registered with the IRS as nonprofit organizations and those organizations in America represent 6.2% of the nation's economy.
Social profit agencies exist for a few purposes. We are here not to make money to please stockholders, but to help people for the greater good. Organizations like us exist to provide people with a service they may not normally be able to receive, to promote initiatives that may otherwise not be noticed by the public due to funding or not be able to garner enough support, and creating a community atmosphere.
