Fundraising & Nonprofit Development
Numerous sources confirm it's getting harder and harder to raise
money for worthy causes. Whatever the advocacy you represent,
identifying and accessing potential donors is more of a challenge
We can't offer you a fundraising panacea, but we can show you
examples of direct response campaigns, list development programs,
and special events that have made a real difference in the level
of visibility and fundraising capacity of our not-for-profit clients.
Among the worthy causes we have been associated with in the past
or currently represent are:
Charles River ConservancyFor whom we have created and
produced numerous appeals, fundraising programs, and special events.
Among the more interesting mailings we have developed are a unique
"lochure" mailer. On behalf of the Conservancy, we have also undertaken
sophisticated list development and analysis programs, and a symposium
event featuring noted national figures in politics, urban planning
and the media.
The symposium was highlighted by the introduction of Inventing
the Charles River by Karl Haglund (MIT Press, 2001), for which
we had the pleasure of writing the fore- and afterwords. This
event was documented in industrial quality video and was attended
by over 200 environmentalists and urbanists.
Tenants of HarvardFor whom we produced a series of three
special events between 1993 and 2001 to bring public attention
to RTH's success as a developer and manager of affordable housing.
All three events featured Boston's Mayor Thomas Menino along with
such national and local figures as Henry Cisneros, US Secretary
of Housing and Urban Development, and Neil Rudenstein, president
of Harvard University.
Mathematics FundWhile still in an early stage of development,
the Fund is making a real difference at the grass roots level.
We created a unique identity for the fund, wrote and designed
a fundraising appeal campaign, and offered development council
in support of the Fund's long-term goals.
VictoriaFor whom it was our honor to assist IBT, a Community
Development Corporation in Boston's South End, in creating a 30th
year event celebrating its founding. First, we wrote, photographed
and published a narrative of the community's genesis and programs
in the form of a newspaper. Printed in both English and Spanish,
the newspaper was distributed throughout Boston's South End and
at a special concert and recognition event featuring former Boston
Mayor Raymond Flynn and notable figures from Boston's social services
We also have long experience in public and not-for-profit theatrical
festival production and educational reform initiatives, and comment
on politics and economic affairs by means of a regular op-ed
column in the MetroWest Daily News.
