OUR APPROACH

We help philanthropies…

1

Embrace today's
digital-first playbook

1

The world has changed…new strategies, technologies, and (most importantly) donor preferences require fresh thinking to help clients proceed with economy, clarity, and dynamism.

2

Blend science + art

2

Campaigns, and the communications that serve them, are not art projects. They must surface, distill, and then radiate aspirational yet authentic answers to Why here? Why now? Why you?

3

Engage critical stakeholders

3

Campaign projects must achieve a delicate balance between careful consensus-building and the embrace of a central big idea. We help clients manage the process of engagement instead of reacting to it.

4

Cut to the chase

4

We believe a lean, focused, and highly collaborative effort yields better outcomes every time. Accordingly, we do everything we can to wring out inefficiencies, executing a process that will deliver on time and on budget.

5

Extend your existing brand

5

Campaigns are hard-won opportunities to deepen brand equity. We help clients craft campaigns that align the jet fuel of philanthropy with your existing brand story, mission, and identity.

6

Advance the fluid,
modern campaign

6

Modern, multi-year campaigns are highly dynamic and fluid. Without fail, additional priorities arise, progress is made, new leaders emerge. We empower clients with the modern tools required to be nimble, collaborative, and entrepreneurial.

7

Stop talking to every donor;
start talking to each donor

7

Big, glossy, expensive case statements have limited impact. We help clients break through and delight major prospects through hyper-tailored, digital-first asking and thanking.

8

Build the ideal team

8

We encourage clients to view our team as an extension of your internal team, relying on us to provide high-value direction-setting and capabilities while freeing your internal professionals to do what they do best.
