About Us

Where did it all start?

The Alignment Initiative was born from a realization many of the world’s social problems, such as poverty, hunger, and lack of adequate healthcare, are often caused by waste and inefficiency.


Although tremendous resources by numerous organizations have been brought to bear to tackle these and other social problems, so much more remains to be done today.

Much like rowers who do not work in unison, I observed how many organizations, even when working towards the same common purpose, were wasting time, misusing energy, and squandering resources because they were not working together. 

 

The Alignment Initiative seeks to help organizations identify and implement new ways to work together to address our world’s social problems, and Making Good Greater by doing more good, more effectively and more efficiently.

The Alignment Initiative is non-profit organization dedicated to creating a movement directed towards creating unique opportunities for collaboration to “push boundaries” and “make the impossible, possible”!

 

We are a CAN DO organization that leverages the existing humanitarian and social impact efforts to Making Good Greater™.


The principle of Making Good Greater™ (MGG) rests on the idea of taking a mindful approach to doing what you are already planning and investing a fraction more of thought and resources to achieve an exponential output and impact. More simply put, “taking one step back to take three steps forward”.

Making Good Greater

Mechanisms of Action

THE Alignment Initiative takes both a “top down” and “bottom up” approach, meaning . . . from “self-alignment” to “global alignment” and is all inclusive by design in order to maximize opportunity, impact, and scalability. 

The Initiative seeks to align and deliver results from the personal level and local community level, all the way up to the global level, and is most effective and impactful when it can synergistically align multiple stakeholders together.
