For Impact is a force for good, applying our experience to bring clear strategy and funding resources to the most pressing issues of our time, such as climate change mitigation, economic justice, food security, and much more.
Our roots were forged in economic development and Catholic education. Today, we apply our human-centered-design approach to new frontiers of social innovation from aquaponics to artificial intelligence.
Helping to unlock funding is our contribution to impact. However, to do that effectively, we usually have to bring entrepreneurial thinking to get clear on strategy, work through constraints, and build systems for desired change.
Through our consulting, coaching, and training, we’re supporting causes in all 50 states and more than 30 countries. From start-up social entrepreneurs in East Africa to high-performance teams at Ivy League universities.
