A social enterprise is just like any other traditional business, except they aim to reinvest all profits into achieving change within our society. This can be anything from social change to protecting the environment - the sky is the limit!
As a nonprofit organisation, all of Uppertunity's profits go towards providing our members with more services, volunteering opportunities, equipment and more. Many of our members go on to volunteer with us, and the profits and funds we are granted let us provide even more meaningful opportunities.
We need many different materials and types of equipment in order to run our weekly classes - from baking supplies to sewing machines - and any money we receive also goes towards replenishing and maintaining these items.
