Our story

With decades of work experience in community relations, CSR/sustainability, and corporate and foundation giving, we have experienced the plusses and minuses of being embedded in various functions. We have experienced the pros and cons of private foundations and donor-advised funds. We have run international giving campaigns and put impact measurement systems in place. 

In short, we understand how these functions fit into the “S” of ESG (environmental, social, governance) performance. And when employers are aligned, transparent and disciplined with community investments and relationship management, award-winning programs result.

What makes us different

  • We know how to align, activate, and amplify citizenship priorities with an organization's vision, mission, and values as well as global goals.
  • We excel at socializing recommendations, getting buy-in, and advocating for process changes.
  • We are well-versed in operationalizing strategy, reducing risk, strengthening governance, engaging employees, and positioning organizations and leaders.
  • We know how to create impact measurement programs, allowing organizations to measure, aggregate, and communicate social impact over time.
  • We are adept in building concise citizenship frameworks with message mapping to guide internal and external communications.
  • We understand the challenges, we know what works and what doesn’t, and unlike most consultants, we’ve actually done it in a large, complex enterprise within a politically-sensitive industry.
