How To Help

The relationship between small businesses (or companies of any size, for that matter) and nonprofit organizations is often mutually beneficial. Nonprofits ask for donations; companies respond by sponsoring nonprofits’ important projects. Nonprofits need volunteer hours; companies have manpower and time they can offer. Small businesses do not often have extremely developed corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs, but that doesn’t mean they can’t or shouldn’t lend a helping hand to our nonprofit.

Ways to Help

Host A Volunteer Day

If you want to give your employees a chance to bond as a team and effect some positive change at the same time, why not host a volunteer day?


Start Matching Your Employer's Donation

If your employees enjoy giving money to their favorite charities, why not give those funds a boost and match them?


Create A Nonprofit Resource Page

Having a nonprofit resource page on your company’s website or posted somewhere in the office can be a good way to inspire charitable fence-sitters who may need some encouragement.


Consider Offering Skills-based Services

If your employees have skills or services that they can lend to an organization, encourage them to do so! You can offer legal advice, account services or marketing consultation to small nonprofits that may be unable to pay for these types of services or hire outside help.


Apply to Become Board Member

If you or someone in your company has a real passion for philanthropy, you might consider applying to become a nonprofit board member.


Attend Our Community Events

Attending a nonprofit event, whether it’s a fundraiser, rally, seminar or anything in between, can be an inexpensive way to show your support of an organization.

You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

Ignite your Entrepreneurial Spirit

Power of Entrepreneurship

We believe in the power of entrepreneurship – and an entrepreneurial spirit – to tackle global challenges, transform communities, create jobs, spur economic growth and close the opportunity gap that confronts far too many people here in the United States and around the world.

Vibrant Communities

We believe that through entrepreneurship, we can create more vibrant communities, a stronger America and a more prosperous world, close the opportunity gap and scale creative solutions to persistent problems.

Visionary Change Makers

A sense of economic opportunity is like fire – when ignited, it spreads quickly. We intend to stoke the fire and support the visionary change makers ready to take action.

Take Action

Be it an act of volunteerism, voicing an opinion at a town hall meeting, finding connections through online networks or turning contacts into national or global campaigns, citizen driven solutions are critical to challenging the status-quo and breaking down barriers to innovations that will improve the health of our communities, businesses, cities, nation and the world.

Make A Change

Social Change

Citizens are ready for, and demanding, social change. They need better, smarter and more effective ways to enact that change and they need greater faith that their voice will make a difference. We want to catalyze the efforts of change makers who put citizens at the center of efforts to solve the world’s greatest social challenges.

Transformative Change

The actions of one person have the potential to spark a movement. And we believe that it are movements created by engaged citizens that can lead to transformative change.
