Our approach

Every project is a partnership. Each client’s mission is our own. We only take on work where we can support you to make a real difference.

John F. Kennedy

Things do not happen.
Things are made to happen.

We deliver high quality work product, with a fresh perspective and love working with organizations, brands and individuals who have both purpose and drive to do good in this world. Our focus is on supporting.

Context is Everything

Before we develop plans, we evaluate the cultural and political landscape and hone our strategies accordingly.

We're In It Together

When we join your team, we do it to solve a problem, not quibble over the scope of work. We will dig in and do the work to get results.

Communication is Key

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our own time in the trenches, it’s that teams function best when everyone is open and transparent.

It's a Marathon

Change takes time. That’s why we approach any challenges and obstacles with gratitude and appreciation for the lessons they teach us – and then we keep going.

Our Services


We develop strategic campaign plans including clear goals, measurable outcomes, budget, communications and execution timeline.


We can analyze programs, organizations, or sectors of work. For example, see our work on leadership transitions and nonprofit management.


We help individuals, companies, and foundations determine their philanthropic priorities, evaluate potential investments, and manage grant-making initiatives.


We write fundraising plans and identify sources of support for your campaign’s needs. We can hone your pitch and coach you in all aspects of the fundraising cycle.


We coordinate teams to implement plans through to completion, including adjustment to strategies to ensure we’re not just hitting the timeline but accomplishing the goals.


We craft your story and new ways to tell it, including logo design, social media graphics, websites, pitch decks, and written proposals.
