REDF (formerly Roberts Enterprise Development Fund)

REDF provides funding, business connections, and operational expertise to help develop social enterprises that employ those who face the greater barriers to employment. Since 1997, REDF has supported 50 social enterprises that have helped 9,500 people in California and generated millions of dollars for local communities. By 2015, REDF expects to help 2,500 more Californian join the workforce. To increase connections and learning among social enterprises, REDF launched the Social Enterprise for Jobs (SE4Jobs) Working Group in 2010, which now includes 300 social enterprise leaders and operators, consultants and support providers, employers, investors, and workforce partners.
