The CAI is a Virginia Small Disabled Veteran Limited Liability Corporation established in 2010 and incorporated in Virginia in 2011 as an out-growth of Partners International Foundation (PIF), a non-profit organization recognized as a public charity under United States Law, section 501(c)(3).
PIF is composed of dedicated individuals who, collectively, possess extensive experience and/or advanced degrees in international affairs (some are sovereigns), military operations, technology development, social science, test and measurement, software design, and program evaluation. PIF enables collaboration between local people and international experts to plan, develop, and maintain sustainable livelihoods.
In 2011, the founders and directors of Partners International Foundation became aware of the need for this innovative philosophy to support the public and private sectors engaged in non-humanitarian work. This presented an opportunity to conduct for-profit endeavors for these customers with a portion of the profits funding PIF’s charitable activities.
The CAI operates as a completely independent for-profit entity while remaining true to its corporate social responsibilities by using a portion of its income as donations together with pro bono work by its employees to support worthy causes.
