Client success story – Motogo
Organizational Architecture has a very diverse portfolio of clients and we have a long track record of working with all types of organizations, whether they are private-sector companies, public-sector agencies, and even non-profits.
We have had a long-standing relationship with Motogo. Motogo’s mission is to teach kids to solve problems through motorcycles. They do that by bringing back shop class through partnerships with schools and community organizations. They offer quarter long and full semester in-school and out-of-school STEM curriculums, and week-long summer camps for middle school and high school students.
Motogo only started a few years ago but has already worked with many schools and organizations throughout Northeast Ohio.
When Motogo was forming, they reached out to us because we had already been affiliated with Skidmark Garage, a community motorcycle garage where you can work on your motorcycle. They provide the tools, space, and community to assist you with your project. As motorcyclists this was a natural fit for OA.
Molly Vaughan is the Executive Director of Motogo. She said:
Mark Fiala and Organizational Architecture has been instrumental in helping Motogo get off the ground. Their experience with non-profits is significant and we have benefitted from this.
One area that was of immense help to us was in assisting us with forming our Board of Directors. OA worked to help us build the women-led, diverse Board we wanted. We felt this was important…our mission is to teach kids problem-solving through motorcycle maintenance…and that includes girls as well as boys. We wanted to demonstrate meaningfully that our leadership reflected everyone we serve.
OA has been helpful in other ways…helping us develop our Board Charter, developing policies and processes for payroll, accounting, and other systems. They were active participants in our strategic planning process and have always been available to provide ad hoc assistance to us when we need it. We are so glad they have been there with us from the beginning to help us get where we are.
Motogo is one of the coolest non-profits anywhere. Really!…check out some of their posts on social media. There are lots of pictures and videos of their programming in action and making a difference to kids across Northeast Ohio. If you are inclined to support them, you can donate here.
