Not for profit structure with a for profit wing?

A friend of a friend is a painter in New York state involved in a project aimed at building parks aimed at improving communication between refugees and citizens. I have been asked how he might be able to organize an entity as a not-for-profit with a profit wing to encourage both private and public contributors. Anyone know of any standard ways of doing this?

I am involved in a nonprofit myself and have business experience but in a whole other jurisdiction and we are entirely self-funded. I have vaguely heard of Charity structures where some aspects of the fund-raising activities are managed by a commercial orgnanization but that is about the extent of it.
I would give you more information but I'm not sure whether they would want me to do that. All I can say from what I have seen is it's a beautiful concept involved with injecting reflective nature areas, free from all forms of technology and stress into city areas.
Many thanks in advance.
