We make social impact our business.

It’s in the name. Philanthropy is Phil’s priority, not a pad to our portfolio. We create brand and communication strategies specifically for socially-missioned organizations and businesses.

Our Values

Trust

It is Phil’s foundation. We form long-term partnerships because our community and our clients trust Phil. Our client loyalty is vetted by our ability to deliver thoughtful, quality, and valuable work on time. Time and time again.

Realistic (SMART)

We apply SMART Strategies to every project: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Specific. We understand very well the limitations of the non-profit sector and work with our clients to design a project that fits their time and resources.

Social Impact

We are passionate change-makers. As a social business, our mission aligns perfectly with our clients. Through the same lens, we communicate in a shared understanding to reach common goals.

Innovation

Sometimes there is a well-traveled solution. Other times, one needs to be created. Armed with a working compass and knowledge of the terrain, we lead our clients to discover new levels of success. Taking risks reaps greater reward.

Doing it Right

Our clients deserve our professional advice. We only do work we believe will help our clients help others. Fame is not the goal. The goal is doing good, right.

Results

We exercise tremendous grit when delivering a project to ensure it is of the highest quality and completed on time. While we value process, results are how we measure our success.

What makes us Phil

We are non-profit communications experts: we craft stories to catalyze positive change for the triple bottom line. We help, we create, we activate. And above all, listen. Closely.

What we do

Phil creates fundraising and communication strategies and tools specifically for socially-missioned organizations and businesses. We also have top IT professionals ready to answer your technical needs to support the entire process.

Non-profit experts

We offer our clients an understanding of the social economy landscape better than any profit-driven agency because working with social economy organizations is all that we do. And we love it. We bring non-profit best practices into the modern age by deploying strong stories leveraging relevant technologies, tools, and strategies.

The struggle

Non-profits and social business leaders value consultation and communications but constantly feel the stretch from resources demanded by a million different needs. Often, crucial steps are neglected and the organization wilts. We empathize with that struggle.

For organizations that are seeking to reach their full potential by investing in our professional services, we fine-tune their uniquely compelling narrative. The organization staff and volunteers are left to do what they do best, leaving us to work our magic. And the results are why we’ve been doing this for over 15 years.

Storytelling

How good is your impact if your mission has no reach? We are excavators; we dig deep to discover our clients’ uniquely compelling narrative, we polish to make it shine, and then we make sure the story is consistent internally and in all communications.

Who we work with

We love our clients. For over 15 years, we’ve built long-lasting, trusted partnerships with carefully selected, remarkable non-profit organizations and social businesses. These partnerships start at ground zero. Our clients are poised to take advantage of present-day fundraising and communications tools but often don’t know where to begin.

How we work

Our work begins with our clients’ “why”. We draw from the vision, mission and values of their organization to make sure it carries through, consistently, across all the channels, all the way to the marketing and fundraising material.

With that in mind, we recommend our clients start by developing a strategy with us. We collaborate and suggest solutions to answer, “but, how?” Then, we answer the, “what?”. Phil’s creative and analytical team uses relevant tools from supporting avenues to lift our clients’ communications from every angle.

We develop strategies and solutions through analysis, research, and by asking smart questions to find thoughtful answers.
