What we Do
PR for Good helps organizations develop greater awareness and advance deeper relationships with donors, members, policy makers, employees, volunteers and clients. We’re a boutique consulting firm offering both senior level strategic counsel and also, hands-on project support.
How we Work
We are at our best as strategic partners focused on clear, measurable objectives with a mutual commitment to the ongoing work required for success. That’s why, depending on the work and objectives, we have a minimum six-month engagement. We are efficient, however, we don’t believe in taking shortcuts that could jeopardize long-term results, relationships or reputations.
We have flexible fee structures that are based on the resources needed to achieve your objectives.
Trust is the foundation of every successful communication. Building trust takes time. Maintaining trust requires communications based on listening and responding with empathy and transparency. Trusted communications also require that actions and words be aligned and that both are consistent, in line with values that remain constant. We can help you clarify your value statement and mission, sharpen your messaging and then translate these using the right platforms and channels for each audience.
