Common Impact has introduced just-in-time coaching and strategic guidance for social impact organizations facing sticky challenges, nonprofits responding to issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and racial justice organizations seeking to scale their work.
Corporate professionals skilled in areas like risk management, operations realignment, crisis communications, and IT planning provide quick, strategic support to social sector organizations through a virtual “hotline” curated by Common Impact.
When time is at a premium for both volunteers and nonprofits, the hotline offers rapid response support for crisis situations or a quick injection of advice for capacity-strapped organizations.
