FOUNDED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The National Center for Social Impact was founded in 2016 to bring together the best and brightest organizations, teams, innovators, social entrepreneurs, and individuals to work together to share best practices, learn from each other, provide support, leadership, and community to help make a positive social impact.

Our mission is to help everyone achieve their potential in education, employment, and community. We do this through our engagement with customers to design, lead, and manage their critical initiatives. Our high performance approach ensures that we maintain focus on satisfying primary stakeholders by introducing new resources and organizational changes, building and redesigning business processes, and creating a culture of continuous innovation.

We advocate for select projects and engage with national, state, and local leaders to develop effective policies to promote advancements in improved competency-based education, better bridges between education to employment, improved career opportunities, and increased community resiliency.

We are committed to helping connect the best social impact products and services with our members. Through volume discounting, NCSI negotiates best prices to help organizations direct resources to improved service outcomes. While we offer discounts and savings to all, our members benefit from maximum discounts on leading-edge solutions.

NCSI’s work builds upon over 25 years leading high visibility, high impact projects. Making a positive impact on the lives of millions of people: students, parents, job seekers, employers, underserved youth, ex-offenders, and those seeking opportunities to achieve their potential – NCSI delivers results integrating innovative human-centered design with agile technologies.

Advocacy and Efficacy

The National Center for Social Impact chooses select projects to advocate for funding and resources through our network of connections in business, philanthropy, and government. We choose projects based on the following criteria:

  • Measurable Impact
  • Innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Organizational Readiness

For those with which we are not able to advocate, watch for the NCSI social impact crowdfunding platform in Early 2017 to help you gain maximum exposure and resources.

NCSI Marketplace

The NCSI Marketplace provides a social impact platform to help organizations save time and money while improving business outcomes. Our members recommend products and services that they have found to be effective in helping them achieve improved outcomes. NCSI vets each product recommendation through reference checks and testimonials. Whenever possible we include these testimonials in the product descriptions. We also allow members to comment on products and services.

NCSI negotiates with vendors for best pricing through volume discounts. As a result, we are able to offer discounts to all through the marketplace as well as higher discounts to our members.

Our mission is to deliver an integrated social impact platform. To achieve this, we work with product and service vendors to ensure that the products and services included in NCSI marketplace integrate out-of-the-box with each other to deliver single sign-on, integration with existing systems, and system-to-system API’s for electronic data exchange.

NCSI Marketplace customers can purchase directly via credit card, purchase order, check, Amazon, and PayPal – all through a secure connection.

Share your product recommendation with us so we may consider it for the Marketplace. It provides the opportunity for others to learn from your best practices.
