Who We Can Help

It doesn’t matter how big or small your organization might be, at iMission we’re interested in your mindset and attitude. If your organization has an entrepreneurial mindset then we’re excited to help you reach your goals and advance your mission.

What’s an Entrepreneurial Mindset?

It means being drawn to opportunities, innovation and creating value for stakeholders. It can start with a big idea or a smaller initiative.  The entrepreneurial mindset is about believing that change can happen. It’s about saying “yes, we can.” And it’s about knowing that the strategic – even transformative – resources can be found and secured.


The more you know, the more that we will be able to do together and the more lasting the impact.
iMission offers a growing catalog of courses to help nonprofit teams and boards exploit the power of “digital for good.”  On-demand and in-person training programs address the many facets of nonprofit fundraising, advocacy and marketing.
