What we do

Goodcity is an organization committed to starting and growing entrepreneurs (nonprofit and for profit) making a difference in under resourced communities.

Fiscal Sponsorship

Fiscal Sponsorship is a cost effective way for individuals to implement new programs, start new organizations and test new approaches for social change in a community. Goodcity uses the fiscal sponsorship to help individuals start something new without starting a separate nonprofit organization or while they are waiting for their nonprofit status to be finalized through the federal government.

Management Services

Goodcity serves as your co-partner. Goodcity works to provide high quality administrative and operational services at a reasonable cost to small to mid size nonprofit and for profit organizations working to make a social impact in Chicago and the greater Chicagoland area. We provide interim management, event management, fiscal management, information technology, human resources, and communication/social media services in order for the organization to focus on its core mission of bringing quality programs to the community they are serving.

Consulting and Capacity Development

Goodcity is committed to growing the work of the entrepreneurs who are working to make a difference.  We grow the capacity of these organizations so they are impactful, sustainable, and creating good models locally, nationally, and globally. Our consulting and capacity services works with small to mid size organizations in the areas of:  Strategic Planning, Leadership Development, Advancement and Funding, and Communications and Marketing.

Incubator and Accelerator Program

The Goodcity Incubator Program was started by Goodcity to bring together a cohort of entrepreneurs looking to launch an idea to address a need in their community. The Goodcity Incubator Program lasts for 8 weeks and works with individuals (corporately and individually) during the early foundation years of your enterprise.

Goodcity also provides services for entrepreneurs ready to scale to the next level. We provide a personalized intensive accelerator program for the entrepreneur and his/her team.
