Your Mission, Made Memorable

Helping nonprofits share their story in clear, simple, and strategic ways so people engage and give.

Marketing Strategy | Brand Messaging | Communications Consulting

Many nonprofits struggle to get the word out about their work and its impact.

With the perfect storm of… Limited resources. A lack of marketing experience. Hours spent meeting needs. Desperation over managing it all and keeping the doors open.

It’s no wonder that… Donations are low. Volunteers are scarce. Community leaders are silent. And the story isn’t known outside your immediate circle.

You need a proven plan to clearly share your story and showcase the impact you’re making. Not only with potential donors but with volunteers and those you serve as well.

Because your mission has the potential to change the world. But your impact will be minimal until the world knows why you exist and the work you do.

A proven process to clarify your brand messaging

Over the past 9 years, some patterns emerged amongst our clients.

The organizations that could clearly share their story were thriving, sustainable, and growing. The ones who lacked clarity in their marketing struggled to raise funds, find volunteers and keep the doors open.

Their success didn’t come down to the size of the mission or the solution they provided. It came down to how simply they could explain the complex work they do and the impact it made.

After watching leaders struggle to know what details to share and how to share them, we created the Distill Your Story framework to help. 

This three-part process helps you:


  • Story – Identify the story you need to share that brings clarity to your mission and marketing
  • Simplicity – Simplify your messaging into stories that engage people and grow donations
  • Strategy – Map a marketing plan for sharing your story with your supporters both online and in-person
