Accelerating the Speed of Social Change
How Social Change Really Happens
The best architects do more than construct buildings – they create an experience that provokes thinking and optimizes human interactions. The same is true for building a better world. At Social Impact Architects, we are a bridge between multiple disciplines with the goal of accelerating the speed of social change. Social Impact Architects is a social change agency that provides consulting and learning experiences to changemakers working alongside them to design creative and transformative solutions to social issues.

Businesses are awakening to the value of “doing good.” In this blog, we share this new paradigm and how we all can partner together so people and planet can co-exist with proﬁts.
Nonprofit Strategic Planning
Social Impact Architects works with social changemakers to create transformative solutions to social issues. We provide consulting and learning experiences to the sector, providing the tools and expertise to accelerate and increase community impact.
Stories are the universal language among humans. The good news is that social sector organizations have great stories to share – if you learn how to tell them in the right way. Social Impact Architects works with social sector organizations to develop succinct, compelling messages that convey your results and speak to your stakeholders’ interests. We utilize a variety of tools to provide a holistic picture of the impact you have including anecdotes, internal/external data analysis, and social return on investment analysis.
Nonprofit Impact Measurement
To achieve social impact, you have to start with the end in mind – uncover what you want to know and learn and it will lead you to measure the right things and analyze your social impact to support your decision-making. To do this, we start with the organization’s logic model and work with you to define the impact you hope to achieve. We then work backwards to determine the tools you need to capture results and tell your organization’s story in a compelling way.
Nonprofit Retreat Facilitation
A good retreat has a focused agenda. A great retreat builds your team and facilitates discussion that takes your organization to the next level. Social Impact Architects will work alongside your team to build a customized agenda with expert facilitation before, during and after that will set the stage for results that matter – an engaged team, shared understanding, and manageable next steps.
