AIM: A For-Benefit Company

AIM is a for-benefit company that measures success according to a quadruple bottom line of performance, meaning we are dedicated to performing well financially, environmentally, socially, and in how we treat people. AIM is committed to achieving our mission while making a positive impact on the community and world, as well as the people we employ, serve, and interact with.

    At AIM, our quadruple bottom line means:

  • Profitability—We understand that a healthy profit margin is key to building a financial immune system for any business, even a nonprofit organization. We enhance our partners’ bottom lines by providing economies of scale and sharing resources while minimizing their liabilities.
  • Awakening—Our shared work culture empowers both volunteers and our team to realize their potential through collective efforts and investment in technology that drives efficiency and outcomes.
  • Sustainability—We find ways to minimize both AIM’s and our business partners’ ecological footprints. We symbiotically maximize our business partners’ efforts to be good stewards of their communities and the world.
  • Service—We serve our business partners’ needs with gratitude and are honored by the opportunity to serve them.
