Start a Non-Profit Business
Become a Social Entrepreneur and Make a Living Making a Difference
Imagine having an exciting and rewarding career that gives you the opportunity to make a living doing what you love while making the world a better place. Welcome to social entrepreneurship!
Do you feel inspired to use your talents to help others? Would you like to change the world, or change the lives of a group of people? Do you feel passionate about the environment, human rights, education, literacy, health, or another cause that benefits humanity?

Now is the time to start doing work you believe in by becoming a social entrepreneur and starting your own nonprofit business.

As a nonprofit business founder (also known as a social entrepreneur) you can get paid to do good. Although you can't personally earn a profit when you start a non-profit organization, your nonprofit business can create a job for you doing meaningful work that benefits society.

For example, can you imagine yourself as a social entrepreneur starting and leading a nonprofit business that is working to:

  • Protect our environment
  • Increase appreciation of the arts
  • Raise awareness and funds to prevent illness
  • Improve educational opportunities for children
  • Help the poor in the U.S. or other countries
  • Encourage diversity and tolerance
  • Assist elderly people to live with dignity
  • Provide relief in emergency situations
  • Shelter abandoned or abused animals

  • Another cause you believe in
As founding member of a nonprofit business you will decide how to run the organization. You will lay the groundwork for deciding what issues to address, what programs to run, and how to spend your funds.

When you start a nonprofit business, you can directly help the people who need it. Your programs could change people’s lives and their futures. 

As a social entrepreneur, you'll enjoy freedom from the “rat race” and use a new kind of measuring stick for your achievements: one that measures dollars raised, lives changed, and people helped.

You may travel the world for your cause, meeting with world leaders or people grateful for your help. For many social entrepreneurs, having hands-on involvement and seeing the immediate results of their effort are great rewards and motivators.

With Americans’ charitable giving hitting a record-breaking $295 billion last year, there has never been a better time to become a social entrepreneur and start a nonprofit business.

If you have the desire and determination to see your dream become a reality, you can become a social entrepreneur and start a nonprofit business. No special education or experience is necessary to break into this career and succeed. Some paperwork and filing fees can get your nonprofit started.

However, if you’re like most people who think about starting a nonprofit organization, you’re probably excited about putting your nonprofit idea into action, but overwhelmed by the process. You probably have questions such as:

  • Where do you start?
  • What steps do you take?
  • How do you raise money?
  • How do you get both "tax-exempt" and "tax deductible" status?
  • How do you establish credibility for your nonprofit business?
  • How do you get volunteers?
  • How do you raise awareness and get free publicity?
  • How do you get government grants?
  • How do you get donations from individuals and corporations?
  • How do you organize fundraising events?
  • What other sources of funding are available?
  • What are potential problems and how can you avoid them?
You can find answers to these questions, and much more, in the FabJob Guide to Become a Social Entrepreneur. If you would like to start a nonprofit organization, this e-book is for you!

What Is a Nonprofit Business?

A nonprofit business is a corporation that does charitable work. It is a type of nonprofit organization, and the founder of the nonprofit business is known as a "social entrepreneur."

Because nonprofit organizations are working to make the world a better place, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) offers registered nonprofits the advantage of not paying federal income tax on their business revenue. This way more money is available to achieve the goals of the nonprofit.

With the obvious benefits of not paying business tax, entrance into the nonprofit sector has nearly doubled in the last ten years, according to the National Center for Charitable Statistics. Their data showed nearly 1.5 million tax-exempt nonprofit organizations operating in the U.S.

The FabJob Guide to Become a Social Entrepreneur explains which type of nonprofit organization you should start in order to have a nonprofit business that is able to issue tax-deductible receipts to your donors, making it easier to attract funding dollars.

"Make more money.
Look to your strengths to come up with ways to make extra money at"
