With MarinSpace’s help nonprofits can . . .

  • Create stable, affordable, safe and comfortable work environments,
  • Increase operational efficiency and improve cost effectiveness,
  • Reduce environmental impact,
  • Facilitate collaboration and synergy,
  • Raise their visibility, and
  • Project an image of strength and sustainability.

Our Vision for a healthy, vibrant and sustainable Marin, now and for future generations, is one in which is one in which every community organization has the support it needs to fulfill its mission and serve its community.

Our Mission is to build workspace and collaborations that strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of community organizations.

Our Unique Strategy brings together best practices in real estate development, strategic planning, and nonprofit management.

Incorporated as a tax exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit, MarinSpace operates as a hybrid social enterprise by generating revenue from a combination of philanthropic and earned income sources. Our nonprofit level project fees and rents are both affordable and help sustain our operations. Grants, sponsorships, and individual donations assist us with facility improvements, fund specific projects, and support our information and resource referral programs. We also partner with other nonprofits to collaboratively submit planning grant proposals, provide fiscal sponsorship for projects, and/or develop facility-based equity sharing arrangements.

MarinSpace is in good financial health. We consistently achieve 100% board participation in our fundraising efforts; operate our Nonprofit Center at full occupancy; annually meet all operating expenses; maintain a healthy reserve fund to cover our real estate-related risks; have successfully refinanced our building several times to lower our debt service cost; and have managed a variety of capital improvement projects that leverage both commercial and philanthropic funding.

WHAT WE DO

  • We provide real estate-related services to help create affordable, quality, mission-enhancing workspace.
  • We provide business and planning services to support effective inter-organizational collaborations.
  • We own and operate buildings such as the 14,000 square foot Skyview Terrace Nonprofit Center which we have owned and operated since 1998, providing stable, affordable, mission enhancing space to dozens of local nonprofits for many years.

We also maintain an up-to-date database of more than 2500 tax exempt entities and programs operating in Marin County. Our information is regularly updated with IRS, Guidestar, and the National Center on Charitable Statistics data. We also invest a great deal of time conducting research to augment and validate the information.

WHO WE SERVE
As a 501(c)3 public benefit corporation, we effect positive social change through supporting a wide spectrum of organizations that address health and human service needs, environmental issues, economic development challenges and many other critical social issues.

As a nonprofit service provider we have developed many strong relationships throughout the sector. We serve over 40 direct client organizations per year and interact with dozens more at events and conferences as well as through our online resource center. On a national level, our CEO provides key leadership services to the Nonprofit Centers Network, both as a founding Board Member and as a senior project consultant.

Our direct clients are primarily small to medium sized Marin-based nonprofit organizations. However, we also work with government agencies, foundations and real estate professionals.

OUR VALUES
To achieve our mission and deliver the highest quality service to our clients we value collaborative, innovative, professional, and sustainable, practices.
