WE ARE TRUSTED ADVISORS.

Beginnings

Beginnings

When first starting our agency, we worked on commission specializing in marketing-focused sponsorships at entertainment attractions. On one hand, it was a good business model. Clients could never leave because we had and maintained all the relationships!

But the focus changed after our founder, Parker Harrington, was invited to share her insights at several nonprofit conferences.

Charitable missions moved her, plain and simple. And they moved us, too. So we started experimenting with a system to address nonprofits’ toughest challenges.

Focus

Focus

Whether reviewing naming rights contracts, preparing crisis plans or developing awareness campaign, we deliver stellar results.

We also help clients with corporate engagement and fundraising. Sometimes that’s implementing our engagement model. Other times it’s identifying opportunities, retooling benefits, generating prospects or educating board members.

We interpret, educate, create and implement.

Reputation

Reputation

Over the last 20 years, we’ve created ethical programs for scores of clients of all sizes in markets across the country. We are also the preferred trainers for many statewide nonprofit organizations.

It is a real privilege to share our expertise and have a hand in helping nonprofits deliver on mission in their communities.
