Membership = Community

Community has never been more important. And at the Centre for Social Innovation, we have built one of the most effective and welcoming ones possible. Since 2004, we have become the home-base — both online and offline — for thousands of smart, kind, and principled people.

Our membership includes many of the world’s most respected organizations, enterprises, and NGOs. Together, we’re building a movement of nonprofits and for-profits, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, artists and activists. We’re working together to create a system that puts people and planet first.

Whether you are looking for a charming and welcoming physical space to work in or a dynamic and curated online space to be part of, we’d love to have in our network of networks. Let us connect you with other leaders, innovators and collaborators. You’ll gain access to a suite of tools, a braintrust of new peers, and exclusive hard-to-reach audiences. You’ll also get invitations to workshops and events, meaningful social capital, and discounts to local and national businesses. On any given day you could meet someone who will change your life.
