Why Museum Bento?
Museum Bento CCC is a mission-based social enterprise incorporated as a Community Contribution Company (CCC) in British Columbia. What is a CCC? A CCC is a business model similar to a standard corporation except for the following details:
a) Conducts business and earning revenues for social and community focused purposes. An annual report is published every year to hold the CCC accountable to the public.
b) Requires, upon dissolution, distribution of all assets to community focused charitable organizations.
This model was chosen to best enable the mission of Museum Bento, which is dedicated to the promotion and protection of Asia Pacific arts and cultural heritage through educational programs and publications. Museum Bento was created to raise awareness about cultural heritage among young people, believing this the best way to guarantee the endurance of cultural traditions and heritage sites.
