Interested in getting our help with your non-profit or social enterprise?

  • Are you considering a project that uses quality principles to improve your community?
  • Do your plans include collaboration with a local not-for-profit organization or government agency?
  • Could your project’s outcomes provide ASQ with an example that will encourage others to use quality tools for community improvement efforts?

If so, a Community Good Works project team may be available. Although one of our projects for this year will be a winner of the Social Enterprise Heroes event, we are interested in running a second project later in the year.
