Welcome to Academy for Grassroots Organizations

Academy for Grassroots Organizations was formed in the year 2000 to meet the needs of a growing San Bernardino County by coalescing and strengthening its nonprofit sector.

Today, with a mission to improve the quality of life in our region by supporting and strengthening the social service sector, “AcademyGO” provides a variety of resources and nonprofit learning opportunities throughout the region and serves a network of more than 1,000 nonprofit professionals and volunteers.

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."
