We’ve always thought about a better way to do things in the nonprofit sector. A better way to make the nonprofit workplace a more creative, more collaborative, more powerful and more inclusive place.
Many traditional nonprofit office spaces are bare bones, not so glamorous, and are often located in remote or suburban areas out of touch with the communities they serve. Paired with a dull physical office atmosphere is the industry-wide challenge of employee retention, where nonprofit staff can grow distant from their jobs and the mission after working on inspiring projects in uninspiring places.
And lastly, nonprofits are tasked with a lot, and managing the day-to-day office operation isn’t always a top priority when the needs of the community always come first.
These are only a few of the reasons we created The Blake Annex to change the way nonprofits work for good. Our private offices, dedicated desks and open coworking space gives nonprofit leaders and staff an opportunity to work in a modern, flexible environment fully managed by our dedicated team of community crew members.
We’ve alleviated the worries about turning the lights on, brewing the coffee and closing shop for the night, so our members can be more impactful from 8-5 and have more chances to serve, to grow and make a difference.
