A wiser way of giving
Social enterprises are not-for-profit businesses driven by a social mission.
Because of this mission, the operating costs of supportive-employment business models are estimated to be 25-35% higher than traditional ones. This is why JustWork relies on generous, tax-deductible contributions of people like you: to cover these mission-driven costs.
And here's the good news: because we are a business providing employment, every dollar donated provides a real opportunity for change. Through work, employees have the opportunity to earn an income and also to develop job skills, gain confidence through good work, and build strong relationships.
