About Social Impact Advisors

Social Impact Advisors works with ambitious not-for-profits, companies and foundations as facilitators, coaches and consultants, focused on impact and benefit for people and the planet.

Although our founders have been working in not-for-profit strategy for several years, Social Impact Advisors is a new company. We knew from the start that our business would be about the positive impact we can make in the world and we could make more of it by working together. Our clients are interested in social and environmental change - we share their dreams of social change and environmental protection and innovation. The certification process was a great way of getting our young company aligned with the B Corp principle of interdependence and ensuring our business practices keep people and planet in mind.

The Change We Seek®

SIA helps nor-for-profit organizations and companies oriented to social and environmental change make the most of their resources and focus on impact. We measure our impact through the influence we have on NGOs making change and on our own contribution to our community, our staff, our suppliers and our care of the natural world around us. Our charitable giving supports NGOs working to solve root causes and we commit to these organizations for the long term, through financial and in-kind support.

What makes us a better company?
