Our Social Enterprise Model

At CI Information Management, we are more than just a document shredding and media destruction company. We are proud to operate as part of Columbia Ability Alliance, a pioneering social enterprise dedicated to making a positive impact in the Tri-Cities community.

What is a Social Enterprise?

A social enterprise is a business entity that operates with the primary goal of addressing social or environmental issues while also generating revenue. Unlike traditional for-profit companies, social enterprises prioritize making a positive impact on society or the environment over maximizing profits for shareholders. These businesses often adopt innovative and sustainable business models to achieve both their social or environmental mission and financial sustainability. The revenue generated by social enterprises is typically reinvested into the organization to further its social objectives. This dual focus on social impact and financial viability sets social enterprises apart from conventional businesses.

Columbia Ability Alliance: Driving Change in the Tri-Cities

As a change leader in the Tri-Cities community, Columbia Ability Alliance operates under a unique social enterprise model. We generate critical mission support through the operation of successful commercial businesses, including CI Information Management, Paradise Bottled Water, and Round Table Pizza, all of which are separate LLCs owned and operated by Columbia Ability Alliance.

A Win-Win for the Community

By choosing to do business with CI Information Management and our sister companies, you receive superior services and products and contribute to the greater good. Our unique structure and overarching mission provide added value to each of our business lines. Doing business with our commercial operations is a win-win for all; our community can directly support small, locally-owned businesses while simultaneously giving back to critical programs that support individuals in need, right here in the Tri-Cities.

Supporting a Diverse Revenue Stream

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Columbia Ability Alliance relies on a diversified revenue stream to sustain its operations. While we continue to receive support from grants and charitable donations from community supporters, our social enterprise model allows us to generate additional revenue through our commercial ventures, furthering our ability to serve individuals with unique abilities and other barriers.
