Why We Built This

During her 15 years of working with and for nonprofit organizations across Canada, Sara Hoshooley realized that the access to information, resources, tools and other content helpful for Canadian nonprofits was sometimes difficult to identify and to find. Lack of access to information and “knowing where to look” meant that some organizations are at a disadvantage, simply because they don’t know where to find the relevant and helpful information that’s already out there.

As Sara began her career as a fundraising coach and consultant in 2020, she often met other consultants, service providers, and other nonprofit serving businesses who were looking for a way to share their work with nonprofits who could benefit from what they were offering.

From there, the idea for Connect For Good was born to connect these incredible nonprofits with the nonprofit-serving business that could help them thrive.

Sara began to work with nonprofits to find out what resources, information and knowledge is most important to be able to easily access.

At the same time, nonprofit serving businesses were consulted to see how they could best support nonprofits and provide information and content in an easy to access way.

Connect For Good was created in 2023 to serve an existing gap in the Canadian nonprofit space, with a goal to become the one stop shop for Canadian nonprofits to access the resources, information and nonprofit serving businesses that help them thrive.
