We are a small consulting firm that helps nonprofits and small businesses tackle the big challenges of online community. As online strategists and contributing experts for the Drupal CMS, we've learned a lot along the way, and we're happy to share our knowledge with everyone.
We are a highly-technical development firm. We contribute and support dozens of Drupal modules and provide training, support, and managed hosting for small and large Drupal projects. We share what we learn from our development initiatives with the community, and we work with the community to inform development goals and solutions. Virtually everything we do is made available as a contribution to the open source community. We don't call this "giving back", we call this "strengthening the resources we depend on."

The mission of the Givens Foundation for African American Literature is to enrich cultural awareness and learning through programs that promote and celebrate black literature and writers. Givens Foundation programs engage nearly 5,000 students, educators, readers and writers in the Twin Cities each year.
In the last five years, our literary arts education program, Spirited Minds and Strong Souls Singing, has become an innovative solution that has supported the academic engagement of more than 6,000 Twin Cities students by delivering black literary artists and storytellers into classrooms to use African American literature as a springboard for teaching reading and writing.
Our NOMMO African American Authors Series has explored the state of the art of African American literature with literary masters such as Amiri Baraka, Angela Davis, Yusef Komunyakaa, Ishmael Reed, Sonia Sanchez, Ntozake Shange, and John Edgar Wideman.
Our Givens Black Writers Collaborative Retreat pairs national and state mentoring authors with emerging black writers to promote the “writing life” and to seed the future of African American literature. Lastly, our Givens Black Books Community Reading Campaign has increased access to quality literature in the African American community and has featured diverse activities and events that encourage reading as an integral part of daily life for more than 800 participants.

As a community of learners, designers, and problem-solvers, PRI is uniquely positioned to develop small-scale, sustainable solutions for urban, suburban, and rural environments. Our primary area of expertise is the design of integrated, highly productive, community-based organic food production systems. Because of permaculture's systemic nature, we bring together people from many areas of expertise—landscape architects, writers, teachers, artists, farmers, gardeners, health care professionals.
Our goals are:
- To engage a wide range of individuals, organizations, and businesses to implement practical solutions that promote health and resilience in our communities.
- To cultivate fun and innovative skill-building opportunities for all learning styles on a variety of relevant topics, including soil health, natural building, food production, and sustainable design
- To explore what works in our natural systems in order to design models of sustainability that are efficient, scalable, and feasible.
- To inspire connection and collaboration within the passionate communities we live in and celebrate our collective work toward a more vibrant, abundant, and just future.
- To transform the problems around us by growing, building, and creating positive change.
Rock Star Supply Company
www.rockstarsupplyco.org | e. firstname.lastname@example.org
Rock Star Supply Co. is a nonprofit organization that improves educational outcomes for at-risk teens by engaging local college students and fun professionals in our tutoring program. We believe anyone who wants to change a teen’s life is a rock star, and since 2009, we’ve supplied those individuals to Twin Cities high schools.
By bringing volunteer tutors (aka Rock Stars) to the classroom, Rock Star Supply Co. provides support to teachers so they can more effectively engage their students. Our Rock Stars work with at-risk students so they can catch up on assignments, develop a passion for learning, and meet interesting adults along the way.
The teens and teachers we serve face more challenges than ever before. With Twin Cities school districts facing budget cuts, school faculties and staffs are being asked to do more with less, and students are finding it harder to receive quality guidance from adults in school settings.
That’s where we come in. Rock Star Supply Co. places Rock Stars in school settings to provide extra support to students who might not otherwise receive the focused attention they
deserve. In doing so, we give the Twin Cities community the opportunity to enter the equation—and become part of the solution.
