Community Benefit Society

R-evolution for Good is registered as a Charitable Community Benefit Society, in other words, it is a community owned society with purely charitable purpose and any revenue generating work must allow it to carry out its charitable purpose only. Community Benefit Societies work to provide benefit for the wider community, for instance, this can be compared to a co-operative society which works for the benefit of its members, whereas, a community benefit society can support anyone in a community whether they are members or not. Being owned and led by community members means that for us the community can own and be part of the solution to child poverty.

Community Shares

Community shares are a way of raising investment capital from communities. Local people are encouraged to buy shares in the enterprise, so become part-owners. As shareholders they are more likely to do everything they can to ensure the success of the business, as a result, becoming volunteers and supporters of the enterprise. Community shares have been used to finance shops, pubs, community buildings, local food schemes, football clubs and even renewable energy initiatives. Most community share offers are made by enterprises registered under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. 

So if you buy community shares in R-evolution you will become a member of the Society, with an equal vote regardless of the size of your shareholding. Your involvement can be as much or as little as you wish. You can vote at Member Meetings, stand for election to the Board, volunteer skills for the running of the organisation or even help run community events or activities.
