Start a Business Using Profit to Fund Purpose

Looking to start a company that helps nonprofits in your area? Champions Leadership brings together creative and ambitious leaders to transform the existing system of leadership development. We go beyond traditional classroom-based formats and move to an experiential-based model by partnering the for-profit world with the nonprofit world.

The Need

Leaders of community-based organizations, or nonprofits, face many challenges. A lot of them do not have a formal business education. They are driven by a passion to solve an issue in their community. This thinking creates new opportunities for profit and competitive advantage. Competitiveness of a company and health of a community are closely intertwined, but not all profit is equal. Companies that profit through a social purpose represent a higher form of capitalism.

How it Works

Champions Leadership alliance connects for-profit leaders with nonprofit leaders to solve issues facing both organizations. For-profit companies purchase memberships for leaders who would like to participate. Each paid membership comes with a free membership for a nonprofit of their choice.



Leadership development is important for both for profits and nonprofit organizations. We setup monthly and weekly mastermind groups to help both come together a solve problems that matter to both.
Come to Academy



Nonprofits rarely have money to advertise. We help nonprofits find and pay for promotion and marketing.



Nonprofits can only do good in the community if they stay open. The for-profit and nonprofit teams we put together work to find ways to keep nonprofits open.
