Regardless of whether it’s an individual or an organization, regardless of their choice of incorporation- non-profit or for-profit, these elements are the driving force.[/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb” title=”We support social entrepreneurship.” url_new_window=”on” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” url=”http://tricofoundation.ca/our-work/” use_icon=”on” font_icon=”” icon_color=”#7EBEC5″ use_circle=”off” circle_color=”#7EBEC5″ use_circle_border=”off” circle_border_color=”#7EBEC5″ icon_placement=”top” animation=”top”]We are a private foundation that believes in supporting social entrepreneurship through programmatic, grant making, and partnership approaches.

Enterprising Non-Profits Alberta (enp-ab) began in 2011 and is a collaborative program that provides matching grants and technical assistance to non-profit organizations to support the development or growth of their social enterprises (i.e., revenue generating businesses). Enp holds social enterprise workshops in the spring and fall for non-profit organizations wanting to learn more about social enterprise and how to gain access to enp grants from Trico Charitable Foundation for business planning projects.

The Social EnterPrize awards were created to recognize and celebrate leadership and excellence in social entrepreneurship across Canada.  The awards look for the best practices, social impact and innovation of organizations and their social entrepreneurial strategies.

The awards are presented bi-annually and provide organizations with award funds that can be used to take their social enterprise to the next level.  The awards were last presented in 2013 at the Social Enterprise World Forum and will be awarded in 2015.

It made history in a number of ways- it was a first for Canada and attracted a record number of speakers and attendees (1,000 individuals from more than 30 countries and over 100 speakers from 20 countries)- but we are most proud of the quality of the discussions on Skills Building, Social Finance, Indigenous Social Enterprise, Collaboration, Policy and Research, and Social Innovation.[/et_pb_slide][/et_pb_slider][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left”]
