Are you talking about a B-Corp or a Benefit Corp? The first is a
certification, the second is a legal structure.

Before deciding,  you might want to take a look at this archived chat about
the benefits of B-Corps vs. L3Cs (another possible structure): (Terrible
structure to get through, but good info.):
http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/nonprofit-for-profit-l3c-b-corp-ho-22806/

This is a pretty good site too: http://www.lawforchange.org/lfc/default.asp
