The Prosperity Project - the First Open Source Social Enterprise
23 Jul 2006
The Prosperity Project is a roadmap for building the donation services industry – the most socially positive and economically promising industry to emerge in decades. As an open source social enterprise, anyone - or any organization - can build donation services enterprises and own what they build.

The Prosperity Project provides a roadmap for building the donation services industry, based on the first-of-a-kind business model DoughNation Services LLC has proven since 2002.

DoughNation is the first service in the nation to offer homeowners tax deduction documentation and delivery for donations of good quality clothing and belongings. DoughNation customers all gain deductions worth as much or more than they pay for service (and the fee is even deductible as part of making a charitable donation), and they enjoy having a much easier way to help their community.

Built on the principle ‘do well by doing good’, the Prosperity Project introduces four entirely new enterprises - each with potential spin-off businesses. Together, these enterprises represent thousands of new, living-wage jobs for America.

As founder of DoughNation and the donation services industry, I made the extraordinary decision to turn the Prosperity Project into an open source social enterprise to counter the harmful business practices that have become standard today. I believe ‘doing well by doing good’ is the most needed ethic to put forward in these troubled times, and making the Prosperity Project open source is the strongest statement I can make to back my words.

I invite you to view the story on the Prosperity Project:, and read the attached articles on DoughNation and the expanded Gentle Disposition services.

I encourage you to bring the Prosperity Project to your community social justice, economic development and other organizations working to create a better America. I ask only that the principles and spirit of the Prosperity Project be honored by all those who become Prosperity Project Builders.
