Charter School Business Management / FOREsight Financial Services for Good Inc.
Charter School Business Management believes every child deserves a quality education. Recognizing the potential of the charter school movement to remedy our country’s educational inequities, we are dedicated to empowering the charter sector with financial education, services, and resources. Our mission is to empower charter schools and nonprofit organizations with financial knowledge and services to achieve and maintain fiscal viability.
CSBM/FOREsight is a B Corp, an organization certified as using business as a force for good to solve social problems. B Corps consider the well-being of all stakeholders including teammates, clients, suppliers and community members when executing business decisions, and they seek to create social value as an essential component of their core mission. This is the definition of an active corporate citizen, and it is our goal to impact all members of our community.
Financial mismanagement is the #1 reason nonprofits fail. We work everyday toward preventing this by providing nonprofits with precise books and informative forecasts that provide invaluable insights. To the larger education sector, we provide pro bono coaching and support such as budget reviews for startups. Our executive team also mentors education focused social enterprises through partnerships with New York University, Entrepreneurs' Organization and 4.0 Schools.
For the New York City community, we hold at least two annual volunteer opportunities: one organized by the company where everyone participates and the other organized by team members. This year we will prepare food and serve the homeless. In past years, we have painted school buildings, sponsored food drives and built homes.
For our team, CSBM/FOREsight gives an annual donation in each team member’s name to a nonprofit they have selected. We are also intentional about the environment and benefits provided to our team. For example, our office kitchen provides healthy choices of organic fruit, snacks and beverages to team members when they are in the office.
