SPC Receives Smart Growth Award

The Social Profit Center is honored to be one of this year’s New Jersey Future Smart Growth Award winners, in partnership with NJ Community Capital, Hamilton Township, and US Bancorp Community Development Corporation. 

This award recognizes the innovative restoration of the Social Profit Center, creating workspaces for nonprofits, social impact businesses, and artists as well as working to revitalize the surrounding communities.  On December 15 at 4 pm, New Jersey Future will host a free virtual celebration where the Social Profit Center will be acknowledged as part of the best in smart growth and sustainable development projects from around the state.

Occupying 75,000 square feet, the Social Profit Center provides affordable, below-market rate workspace for diverse nonprofit, art, and social impact organizations in which tenants can connect and partner with similar-minded organizations from the local community.

“This is a way to create a spot for organizations that are doing a variety of things that are critical to the community to be able to afford to be here…There’s nothing I can think of that would have a bigger impact on equity than targeting those organizations that are addressing those critical social and environmental needs in that way.” —Isles, Inc. Founder & Advisor Marty Johnson reflecting on the Social Profit Center
