Our history
Josh founded Cause IQ in 2014 to provide better information on the nonprofit sector to companies serving the sector. Having worked for nonprofits himself, and with many friends at companies who had nonprofit clients and customers, Josh saw a need for business-focused tools to help both companies better grow their nonprofit client base and nonprofits more effectively find foundations to fund their operations. Josh looked into the challenges, determined them surmountable, brought a team together, and started Cause IQ.
