Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to assess whether social enterprise practices can contribute to solving financial sustainability problems for social purpose organizations. Using the illustrative case-study of the Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (BRAC), and based on a financial ratio analysis for the years of 2005 and 2009, this paper concludes that a revenue structure based on social enterprise initiatives, in opposition to donor grants, generates a more financially sustainable organization.
