Alnisa Allgood founded Collab 4 Good using technology to drive Black entrepreneurs to bypass systems that would normally repress them, by creating their own business, taking control of their future.
When it comes to the social good sector, ie, nonprofits / public institutions, and social entrepreneurs, Collaboration 4 Good’s mission is to change the foundations and philosophy that if you work in non profit you have to be a volunteer, work free, or at a reduced rate. A consistent thread that she feels feeds into racism, sexism, and other isms. It also takes away from mental health, and makes the social good sector weaker.
Collab 4 good enables existing nonprofits / social good sector businesses to restructure offering employees a liveable wage that enables sustainability within the business model. Entrepreneurial mentoring teaches new nonprofits / social good businesses that same philosophy. In a technology driven society, Collaboration 4 good is a necessity.
Alnisa is a tech geek at heart, which really, is what led to Collaboration 4 Good. For most of life, Alnisa’s owned her own technology consulting company, Non Profit Tech. The two companies work together very synergistically. Non profit tech is a consulting agency using earned income, to provide tech services in the social good sector. Some of the services offered include digital marketing, social media posting, database design, web design, network & system administration, and user support / training for remote work. Alnisa’s quality of work and solid reputation, has led to international acclaim, now providing services globally the last few years.
Black women in history are generally hidden, for instance, activist, author, and lawyer, Pauli Murray. Pauli wrote a book called “States’ Laws on Race and Color” later referred to by Thurgood Marshall as the “The Bible” of the civil rights movement. Pauli Murray fought at a time where white supremacy argued that separate could be equal, separate will NEVER be equal.

Over the month of February, DJ Fusion will connect with unique, local, Black-owned businesses, each of whom will share a piece of Black history that is personal to them or something that may not have been taught, traditionally, in schools.
