There is a great proposal in the California legislature which would allow for the formation of a “flexible purpose corporation”. This is Senate Bill number 201 for those who keep track of these things. Think of the Flexible Purpose Corporation as profits with a purpose.

Stated simply, this bill will permit a corporation through its boards of directors to engage in one or more charitable or public purpose activities, in addition to creating economic value for shareholders.

This document provides greater detail and some insight into the political course of this unique bill.
