Common Impact helps high-potential nonprofit organizations better meet their missions by connecting them to a community of engaged, skilled professionals; and returns business value to companies seeking unconventional solutions to engaging and developing tomorrow's leaders.
We are super excited to have a team of dedicated runners carry our mission and our message with them on this 26.2 mile journey into the heart of Boston during this year's Boston Marathon. For each $1 that funds Common Impact's mission & programs, we return $7 worth of services and value to the nonprofit agencies we serve. So please give generously to our runners, and help make this year another big success.
Here are some words of wisdom from one of our runners from Team Common Impact 2012:
"At first, I knew very little about the challenges faced every day by nonprofits whose business it is to help people on very small budgets. No matter what their mission - to help the homeless find housing and jobs, match young kids to a mentor, or guide low-income high school students to higher education - nonprofits almost always lack basic infrastructure. Common Impact has figured out how to solve this problem cost effectively, and their work is multiplied many times over in the communities they serve.
Net result: nonprofits get more of what they need without having to divert resources away from direct services, and more people's lives are changed for the better. End of story!"
