OrganizingTogether is a hyper local organizational development and research collective consisting of technical experts, research scientists, and practitioners in an array of fields. We use both qualitative and quantitative methods to help scale organizations and build stronger more resilient communities.
The Collective consists of OT HQ and OT Hubs. OT HQ serves the collective and helps facilitate our capacity building services at each of the OT Hub locations. Each OT Consultant serves organizations in their local communities and pledges to give back 1% of their time and revenue to the OT Foundation.
The OT Foundation provides technical and financial support to nonprofits using technology to end poverty, inequity, and environmental degradation. Our Technology Catalyst Award accepts concept notes that are reviewed by our Board of Directors. Top projects are asked to submit a full proposal and those selected get tailored technical assistance, strategic mentorship, and financial support.
Our platform includes the Community Directory that helps users find local organizations that are doing more for their communities. These organizations have been evaluated by the Collective and have proven to foster inclusivity and provide goods and services that benefit their local communities. The goal of the directory is to support a hyper localized economy around organizations that share a similar vision and mission by empowering citizens to make better purchasing decisions.
We offer free online courses in organizational development on the OT Network. You can also apply for an organizational training space on our network where you can schedule events with your team, instant message them, and create courses to train them and build capacity for your mission. We also offer complimentary consultations for those in need of strategic advice in starting or scaling small businesses or nonprofit organizations.
OrganizingTogether measures, customizes, and charges for—in real time—your organization’s potential social impact and actual economic value. This innovative approach—already embedded in the sharing economy and in other sectors such as financial services—scales prices up or down on the basis of the value an individual customer derives. We use the term “progressive” as it’s used in contexts such as tax systems. But unlike taxes, the levels of prices under progressive pricing are value-based, not necessarily means-based.
Instead of optimizing a small number of price points, OrganizingTogether optimizes a continuum of prices. Progressive pricing enables that differentiation by pushing the logic of discrete price points to its practical limit, offering each customer a fair, personalized product and price point. The key element to our unique progressive price model is a value-sharing algorithm that dynamically sets prices specific to the value an individual organization based on tax status, number of paid employees, revenue, and potential social, economic, and environmental impact.
