To convene, equip, and guide community leaders
What We Do
Academy for Grassroots Organizations was formed in the year 2000 to meet the needs of a growing Inland Empire Region by coalescing and strengthening its nonprofit and community-benefit sector.
Today, with a mission to Convene, Equip, and Guide Community Leaders, "AcademyGO" provides a variety of resources and learning opportunities throughout the region and serves a network of more than 3,000.
As our CEO, Vici Nagel likes to say, "They improve our quality of life ... so we want to make sure that the thousands of amazing people and organizations working to change lives in our region have all the resources and skills they need to be successful. That's our mission in a nutshell."
