The concept behind Side Project Inc. was developed by Jeff Fromknecht, David Brown, Adam Causgrove, Anne George, Andrew Miskowiec, Brandon Keller, and Jerome Fitzgerald.
In 2009, while in law school, Jeff organized this group, inviting his most civically minded friends to a conversation on how we could best leverage our combined education and experience.
Over the the next 3 years the group routinely met, discussed, and planned how to use our eclectic backgrounds and experiences to make the world a better place. We all had volunteered at several small and grassroot nonprofits run by the passion and energy of volunteers. As grant writers, lawyers, accountants, and techies we were often asked to help with administrative side projects.
In August of 2012, after 3 years of informally providing support for nonprofits on legal and administrative side projects, we incorporated our idea into Side Project Inc., a nonprofit corporation with the mission of effecting long-lasting macro social change by supporting the nonprofit and philanthropic community.
