Special to the Jewish News
hari Stein, principal of
in Birmingham, has been
named to a national task force con-
vened by Americans for Community
Development to bring L3Cs to higher
education. The L3C is a tax structure
for for-profit companies organized to
achieve socially beneficial results.
The task force will
look at how to con-
nect higher educa-
tion, job creation,
ment using the L3C
business model as an
ture for colleges and
Team-4-Community L3C is one of
the few existing L3Cs in Michigan.
The company is taking advantage of its
status as a taxable for-profit business
whose primary objective is to achieve
a socially responsible mission, with
profit only a secondary concern. Team-
4-Community's mission is to improve
quality of life in Metropolitan Detroit.
The low-profit status enables Team-4-
Community to charge a modest fee for
its work as well as secure grant funding
to support its social mission.
The company utilizes high school
students and college students to design
and execute all design projects, thereby
mentoring the next generation of
creative professionals. Projects on the
horizon may include renovations of
buildings in Detroit to solar-powered
buildings in southeastern Michigan.
"This new idea for higher educa-
tion using the L3C model brings like-
minded individuals together who want
to educate the next generation with a
collaborative mission that giving back
to the community is what matters:'
L3C educational institutions will be
individually unique but will resemble
each other in underlying structure.
This is a fresh outlook on the organiza-
tion of colleges and universities, which
create holistic environments in which
institutions give back to students and
communities, and the students and
communities are giving back to the
institutions, therefore creating oppor-
tunity ecosystems that thrive. ❑
