About Common Impact

Our vision

We envision a society in which all individuals and businesses invest their unique talents towards a shared purpose: strengthening the local communities in which we live and work. 

Our mission

Catalyzing a new, connected economy by aligning business and social purpose.

Who we are

Common Impact is a nationally-recognized nonprofit that works to build a society in which individuals and businesses invest their unique talents towards a shared purpose: strengthening the local communities in which we live and work. We connect corporate employees to nonprofit organizations with proven models to tackle the greatest challenges our communities face.

We break down barriers that exist between sectors and industries to create meaningful partnerships between companies, social sector organizations and the people that drive them.  The common purpose of these connections:  to deliver real value to each partner through innovations in community engagement, and ultimately to address deeply rooted and complex social challenges.

With a deep understanding of both mission-focused and business goals, Common Impact enables growing nonprofits to achieve even greater results in our communities, while simultaneously engaging corporate employees in dynamic and challenging opportunities that develop their skills and unlock successful, purpose-driven careers.

Founded in 2000, Common Impact has partnered with Fortune 500 companies and hundreds of the country’s leading nonprofit organizations to create this transformational change. Learn more about our services, our impact, the companies we work with, and our nonprofit partners.
