Our Purpose and Values

Our Purpose

We work to build stronger communities by helping nonprofits and startups thrive.


Our Values

1. Add value at every step

We aspire to provide value to our customers with every interaction. We take this seriously, trying to make even the sales process a series of interactions that leave a prospect with new, actionable information even if a sale never results.

2. Build learning environments

Edwards Deming once said, “It is not mandatory to change. Survival is optional.” We agree. To survive and thrive, organizations must be open to learning and change.

3. Foster connection

We believe that people together can do things that no single person can do alone. We try to build social capital in our communities. We are proud to live and work in the DC Metro. We want to work with organizations that care about the regions in which they live.

4. Model continuous improvement

We take kaizen to heart. We advocate it for our customers, and we aspire to model it in our our practices.

5. Emphasize personal development as a foundation of organizational excellence

Investments in our people pay off for them, for Risk Alternatives, and for our communities.

6. Make it fun

We know we have to work hard. But if we aren’t having fun most of the time when we’re “working,” we’re wasting our lives.
