Lowell Perry Jr. believes “Social-profit organizations” is a term that can better capture the contribution made by entities that have too long been known as charities or nonprofit groups.
According to the Chronicle of Philanthropy: “Such a term would also give us a new way to name the people who support organizations that promote the public good: social investors, a term that better reflects this generation of hands-on donors who are willing and able to extend this nation’s great tradition of American generosity. Today’s social investors seek and expect a return on their efforts, in the form of an increase in the greater good.”
