PROGRAMS

Through our programs, we foster connections between the for-profit and non-profit sectors.  These collaborations harness new perspectives and magnify the social sector's ability to reach more people and do more good.  Our skills-based volunteering, board recruitment and fellowship programs for retirees bring together corporations looking to engage their employees with not-for profits needing the expertise those employees offer.  

Start-ups and growing not-for-profits interested in building a sustainable revenue stream benefit from participating in our newly launched Social Enterprise Accelerator and Impact Lab (SAIL). This 10-week workshop provides a rich curriculum with mentorship, content, tools, workshops and lectures that help social entrepreneurs build and launch their idea. 

Both nonprofits and corporations are provided with tools, training and relationship management resources during every phase of these programs.

    Skills-based volunteering (SBV) brings together high-functioning teams made up of corporate and nonprofit professionals to tackle the needs of nonprofit organizations.

    Social Enterprise Accelerator

    Our Social Enterprise Accelerator and Impact Labs (SAIL) is the newest initiative of Mission Edge.  The goal of SAIL is to empower nonprofit and for-profit organizations to be more effective and efficient, and help them in develop sustainable business models based on earned revenue.


    Our goal with launching a skills-based volunteer program with Mission Edge was to give our employees a great giving back experience, but to also hopefully be able to roll the program out to the greater community so other companies and nonprofits could benefit from this type of program.
