This is a new organization. We want to provide a forum for social entrepreneurs, activists, and agents for positive change to develop meaningful and productive relationships with volunteers, professionals, service providers and donors.
The private sector doesn't hold a monopoly on efficiency or professional expertise. Nor do the NGOs and non-profits lay exclusive claim to idealism. We all share the opportunities and responsibilities to create a safer, more secure, and more prosperous world.
Ideas in Action works by pooling the comparative advantages of civil society, private industry, academia, government and others sectors of our community into one place to tackle our toughest social challenges. Day-in and day-out, men and women across our country work in our communities to make a lasting difference in people’s lives. We want to highlight their inspiring stories and help others replicate their success. We want non-profits to share lessons learned and private individuals to share their professional expertise.
By using video interviews, blogs, online conferences, and other social media tools, Ideas in Action can give organizations the tools they need to make meaningful change in our own neighborhoods, across our nation, and around the world.
