GO SOJI COLLECTIVES
Join hands together.
Attend a GO SOJI Collective and hear an introduction to who we are and what we do. Experience firsthand our nonprofit community. We gather people together who are pursuing their passion to change the world and unfolding the potential impact through developing nonprofit corporations. Come and receive important strategic information and mentorship opportunities to get started on your corporation.
In the new age of “social consciousness” nonprofit organizations are the connecting super highway that connects the gap between government, obtaining funding and the public need. Over the last 20 years nonprofit organizations have outpaced all other types of corporations by a large margin and that trend will continue well into the future. People say, “it is time to think outside of the box.” The truth is there is no box! Creating and connecting with other 501(c)3 nonprofit corporations is a movement to make a difference in our world.
Education and Resources.
We offer several workshops covering many topics to help individuals who are just starting to create an organization in Southern California.
This is a hands-on workshop that is a vital part of receiving assistance with converting your passion into a nonprofit organization. As an emerging grassroots movement, you will also connect with others that are developing a community to succeed together.
