Our Business Model
Great Hearts Initiatives is a social
enterprise. We chose this approach as an alternative to
creating a public charity or family foundation. A social enterprise is an organization that
applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being. We
believe that the social enterprise model is the right fit for our mission and goals. Operating
as a social enterprise helps reach our goal of creating a purpose-built giving and impact
platform that ensures the maximum portion of financial contributions goes directly to charities.
Great Hearts Initiatives is privately held and encourages investment in nonprofits and
community-based organizations rather than itself.
