BGI Foundation

SISGI Beyond Good Ideas Foundation is the nonprofit division of the SISGI Group.

Several organization programs such as our internship programs, free educational resources and collaborative work, sit within the nonprofit division. The foundation also awards free and low cost consulting services to organizations and individuals interested in creating lasting social change. A core part of the work of the foundation is to raise awareness of best practices and effective strategies for lasting social change.

Organization Goal: Increase the capacity of the social sector to solve pressing social problems

Launched in May 2011 to address 3 areas of concern in the nonprofit/social sector:

  • Lack of Preparation for those entering the sector
  • Lack of Education and professional development available to those working in the sector
  • Lack of Collaboration and collective effort occurring to solve social issues
