Form a Virginia benefit corporation
If you want to start a business that is about more than just making profits and have a mission to do good while you do well, then a Virginia benefit corporation may be the entity form for you. A Virginia benefit corporation is a separate legal entity that can have, as part of its overall mission, a plan to include a social mission. The benefit corporation is sort of a hybrid between a traditional stock corporation (being for profit) and a non-profit (having a social mission). Virginia now gives businesses the option of registering as benefit corporations, incorporating a social mission in their corporate charters and making the fulfillment of the social mission a fiduciary duty in the same way that generating a profit now is for corporations (these corporations would still be expected to earn a positive financial return, but it wouldn’t be their only goal).
