Small business non-profit franchise?
Volunteerism is the willingness of people to work on behalf of others without being motivated by financial gain.
But the majority work on an impromptu
basis, recognizing a need and filling it, whether it be the dramatic
a lost child or the mundane giving of directions to a lost
visitor In economics,
voluntary employment is unpaid employment. It may be done for altruistic reasons, for example charity,
as a hobby, community service or vocation,
or for the purpose of gaining experience.
Some go so far as to dedicate
much of their lives to voluntary service.
One way in which this is done
is through the creation of a Non-Profit Franchise.
Go for it, LUCKIEST
I'm going to say no, there is no such thing as a non-profit franchise. Franchises charge upfront fees and ongoing fees in exchange for using a concept that has a track record of success, which we define as being profitable. That's really the only reason that one would pay for a franchise....to make money. If you want to run a non-profit, which by definition is not striving to earn profits, what benefit would it be to a person to pay fees to a franchisor?
Non profit franchise.
Couldn't United Way be considered the non-profit version of a franchise?
I think the distinction between the United Way and a franchise is that United Way is just a large far-reaching organization, but they don't tsell their concept and the use of their name to others for a fee.
