Social Enterprise Legal Toolkit

This legal toolkit is focused on supporting for-profit for-purpose enterprises but contains a wide range of information that is useful for enterprises and projects that sit between the solely not-for-profit and the solely financially driven. The toolkit contains information, a template Constitution and real-world examples of legal issues faced by people creating, financing, advising on or wanting to know more about commercially sustainable ways of generating positive social outcomes.

The project is a collaboration between the Social Impact Hub and the Centre for Social Finance Law. It is supported by The Jacaranda Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Seventh Street Ventures.

The information contained in these materials is general in nature, does not constitute legal or financial advice and cannot be construed as such. Independent legal advice specific to your circumstances should be sought since the Toolkit is general in nature.
