All Good Work Foundation Expands Board Of Directors

The All Good Work Foundation, a nonprofit social responsibility program for the flexible workspace industry, has expanded its Board of Directors with the appointment of two industry veterans.

Joe Brady of Instant Offices, and Andrea Pirrotti-Dranchak of Office Evolution, have joined the Foundation’s existing directors Frank Cottle, Nate Heasley, and Chris Steele, together with a team of advisors.

The Foundation, which launched in 2016, matches social impact organizations with donated workspace throughout the U.S., with a primary focus on New York, San Francisco and Silicon Valley.

Nate Heasley, co-founder and Executive Director of All Good Work Foundation, said:

“I’m very excited to have Joe and Andrea join the board. They both have valuable skill sets and connections that will help All Good Work Foundation meet our expansion goals and provide even more resources to social impact organizations in this time of need.”

Joe Brady is an experienced real estate professional with over 30 years in the sector. He joined the Instant Group in 2019 as CEO, Americas, from Walgreens, where he was head of real estate; prior to that he held several senior roles at JLL.

Andrea Pirrotti-Dranchak is the Chief Marketing and Development Officer at Office Evolution, the largest provider of locally owned and operated coworking locations in the U.S. An early coworking evangelist, Pirrotti-Dranchak’s 30-year career in sales, marketing and development includes work with start-ups and Fortune 500 companies.

Joe Brady commented:

“It is an honor to join the Board of Directors at All Good Work. All Good Work’s mission has never been more important or critical than it is right now. Providing connected, community-focused workspaces to mission-driven organizations helps productivity, networking, problem-solving, and a sense of balance between work and home life, ultimately enabling nonprofits use more of their financial resources to enact positive change.

“As the CEO Americas of The Instant Group, I look forward to developing connections and collaboration between the commercial real estate and nonprofit worlds for the greater good.”

Andrea Pirrotti-Dranchak commented:

“With an exemplary track record for matching nonprofits with flexible workspace, All Good Work will continue to have a transformative role in the success of numerous nonprofits. I look forward to sharing my industry knowledge, connections and perspective with my fellow Board members and I’m thrilled to be a part of All Good Work’s ongoing mission.

“Now more than ever, social impact organizations need support from corporate America. I am ready to reach out to my industry colleagues to further advance connections and opportunities for well-deserving nonprofits.”

Since it was founded in 2016, the All Good Work Foundation has connected more than 100 social impact organizations with donated workspace in coworking spaces and business centers through its Residency Program.

In 2020, the Foundation partnered with online booking platform Upflex, to enable flexible space operators to fulfill demand for short-term workspace rentals. Faced with the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, the drop-in service provides a valuable amenity for local community organizations, foundations, and nonprofits, who need flexible access to private workspace without the ongoing cost or commitment of office rental.

All Good Work Foundation Launches Flexible Workspace Program For Nonprofit Organizations

This article was originally published in Allwork.Space.

When it comes to flexible workspace, you can’t get much more flexible than pay-as-you-go.

Whether it’s by the hour, by the day, or in some cases even by the minute, workspace on demand is, well, in demand. And owing to the current situation, it’s in demand more than ever.

Numerous workspace operators have launched short-term workspace initiatives during the pandemic. It reflects many workers’ need to escape the home office and work in a more productive, structured environment — but one that doesn’t necessarily come with long-term lease commitments.

For instance, in September this year, Office Space in Town launched a “new generation” offering that allows people to reserve workspace for as little as one day. The Argyll Club launched a similar product, as did WeWork, which is trialling its own short-term option.

Flexible space for non-profit organizations

Now the All Good Work Foundation, a nonprofit social responsibility program for the flexible space industry, has launched its own ultra-flexible offering for the social impact sector.

Its ‘Drop-In Program’ provides nonprofit organizations with instant access to office space in the form of desks and offices by the day, and meeting rooms by the hour.

“The All Good Work Foundation has been working with the shared office industry for several years, and we’ve seen how much coworking space operators want to help and be connected to the community,” said co-founder Nate Heasley, “and our new Drop-In Program gives them a new way to do that, at a time when it’s needed more than ever.”

The program works by enlisting flexible workspaces who are willing to donate space, which may be day desks, seats in a coworking space, or conference rooms. All Good Work then reaches out to local community organizations to identify organizations in need of workspace and connect them with donated space.

The new service is powered by Upflex, an online platform that gives flexible space operators the ability to manage short-term workspace rentals.

“Since our inception, Upflex has tried to find ways to solve the issue of under-utilized space to create more sustainability,” said Ginger Dhaliwal, Upflex co-founder and CPO. “Our partnership with All Good Work for the Drop-In Program gives us another vehicle to achieve this goal, while also enabling organizations that do good in their local communities.”

Local nonprofits in the social impact sector, and workspaces wishing to donate space to the program, can sign up online here.
