For Purpose Organizations

Adam Braun tells his story better than anyone else can and it’s a story well worth hearing and talking about.

For anyone working in the non-profit world, Adam’s take on the shift to the “for purpose” approach will be both enlightening and encouraging.

“Starting with just a $25 deposit,” he founded Pencils of Promise in 2008  and so far POP has built 208 schools serving over 22,000 students.

Beyond the information at POP’s site, there is this excellent conversation with Adam and Jonathan Fields: He Walked Away From Wall Street, But Nobody Expected This. Including Him…

I hope the story of Pencils of Promise and the concept of “for purpose” versus “not for profit” provoke more thinking and conversation with my friends working in this essential arena.
