A philanthropic program dedicated to supporting nonprofit organizations
(INDIANAPOLIS – September 21, 2020) – Atrium, a next-generation consulting company that leads enterprises through business transformation with AI and analytics, today announced their Cultivate program, the purpose of which is to donate time and expertise to nonprofit customers and charitable organizations.
Since the company was founded in 2018, Atrium has made AI and machine learning for a greater good a cornerstone of their ideology and practice through their involvement with organizations and movements such as Salesforce.org and AI for Good — the social impact center of Salesforce focused on partnering with the global community of changemakers, and a global summit and United Nations platform that fosters dialogue on the beneficial use of AI through the development of concrete projects, respectively. The Cultivate program solidifies their continued commitment to providing support to NGOs with analytics solutions.
In addition to creating Cultivate, Atrium has partnered with Pledge 1%, a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. Spearheaded by Atlassian, Rally, Salesforce and Tides, Pledge 1% empowers companies to donate 1% of product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to improve communities around the world.
“We are proud to welcome Atrium to our growing community and are so excited to see another innovative technology company take the pledge and inspire other business leaders as well,” said Amy Lesnick, Chief Executive of Pledge 1%.
“Over the last couple of years, we’ve made it a priority to provide AI and machine learning expertise to different NGOs. By launching Cultivate, we will have a strong foundation for evolving our social good efforts and be better able to scale with new initiatives,” said Chris Heineken, CEO of Atrium. “I’m proud to be proactive in our outreach and support of organizations that would benefit from our team’s time and talent in order to continue doing meaningful work in the world.”
Atrium has already engaged a number of customers through Cultivate. One such customer is Solutions For Change, a nonprofit organization based in San Diego, California, that was founded in 1999 with a mission to innovate a sustainable and replicable social enterprise model to solve family homelessness everywhere. Atrium and Solutions For Change had already connected over shared interests and goals, and recently partnered through Atrium’s Cultivate program to implement analytics capabilities for Solutions For Change. Atrium reduced the cost of their services in order to help further the organization’s mission and elevate the model’s potential for replicability.
The goal of the work is to improve accountability, transparency, and the ability to measure progress through analytics. In doing so, Atrium will gain an understanding of the current processes and metrics by which progress is measured and assist Solutions for Change to plan replicable systems that work for their staff and for external evaluation.
Through Cultivate, Atrium is dedicated to making technology innovation accessible and attainable to more nonprofit organizations by devoting time and talent to help them solve business problems and scale with AI and analytics.
