WHAT IS A COMMUNITY LAND TRUST?

WHAT IS SELF BUILD
"Self-build" is the practice of creating an individual home for you and your family through a variety of different methods. The term "self-build" is specifically used in the UK and Ireland when an individual obtains a building plot and then builds their own home on that plot.

WHAT IS CROWD FUNDING

Crowd funding is the collective sharing and supporting of ideas between people, bringing them to fruition through monetary funds donated, services offered and the power of collaboration. Yes, modern crowd funding essentially occurs online, but it's also happening when you share an idea with your friend over lunch, hand someone a check to start their business, or simply give a project social approval online or face to face. Funds donated go a long way, but the real success comes from collaboration, networking and gaining support from your peers.

THIRD SECTOR ORGANIZATIONS

Third sector organisations is a term used to describe the range of organisations that are neither public sector nor private sector. It includes voluntary and community organisations (both registered charities and other organisations such as associations, self-help groups and community groups), social enterprises, mutuals and co-operatives.

CAN REAL ESTATE CROWDFUNDING CREATE AFFORDABLE HOMEOWNERSHIP FOR LOW INCOME AND MODERATE INCOME PEOPLE?

In many major population areas throughout America there are perfectly good patches of land that are being underutilized. Could these funds not be similarly pooled together and dedicated to help provide affordable housing for low and moderate income residents. An abandoned building, vacant lot, or distressed building can all be renovated and provide something valuable for everyone both directly and indirectly.

WHAT IS A HYBRID ORGANIZATION

A hybrid organization is an organization that mixes elements, value systems and action logics of various sectors of society, i.e. the public sector, the private sector and the voluntary sector. Examples include organizations employed in the provision of public services that were originally established by societal actors, such as (in the European context) most social housing providers, public schools and hospitals. Other examples are public sector organizations that, due to the New Public Management revolution, behave in a more business-like way and organizations as the state-owned enterprise that also compete on the market place.
