We build stronger communities by helping nonprofit organizations and startups thrive. We provide training and tools to evaluate and deal with risk and build flexible, durable strategic plans.
We cater primarily to nonprofit leaders, providing nonprofit resources to ensure they are prepared for all potential risks and nonprofit challenges through proactive nonprofit risk management.
- Add value at every step
We aspire to provide value to our customers with every interaction. From initial risk assessment to completed contingency plan and beyond, we want to add value to every step of your organization’s journey.
- Build learning environments
To survive and thrive, organizations must be open to learning and change. That includes our team: we strive to learn something new every day.
- Foster connection
Together people can do things that no single person can do alone. We build social capital in our communities. We want to work with organizations that care about where they live.
- Model continuous improvement
We take kaizen — continuous incremental change — as a bedrock principle. We advocate it for our customers and aspire to model it in our practices.
- Emphasize personal and professional development as a foundation of organizational excellence
We believe investments in our people pay off for them, for Risk Alternatives, and for our communities.
- Make it fun
We have to work hard. But if we aren’t having fun most of the time when we’re “working,” we’re wasting our lives.
