Project Description

Hello! My name is Joanne Sonenshine and I am

Founder of Connective Impact,

a Partnership Strategy Advisory Firm in Arlington, VA

That's me in Nicaragua

For the last 5 years we have worked with mission-driven organizations of all sizes to match them to the right donors and partners in developing countries and to serve communities whose social and environmental needs are challenged.

Our goal?

Amplify impact across a multitude of social and environmental projects and programs by finding the right partners for our clients.

We are benefiting from accelerated growth and evolution. 

As we've grown, however, we've found that mission-driven companies of all sizes need our help. Social enterprises in developing countries, in particular, are asking us to help them with their fundraising and partnership developing needs. We are not able to respond to smaller company requests as much as we'd like, given limited cash flow and staff resources.

We need support to better help 

smaller, more social entrepreneurial companies in

developing countries

in their collaboration for impact efforts.

(Our Partnerships, Purpose and Profit e-course is a start,

but we'd love to hire a business development part-time

employee to help us grow and better respond to

this group of mission-driven businesses.)

We need your support to

help scale our efforts and

ensure smaller, mission-driven companies,

benefit from our partnership strategy efforts

and make impactful change for years to come.

Every little bit helps us advance the work. We are tremendously grateful for your participation and generosity


THANK YOU!
