What We've Done

What Our Clients Say

  • I can’t say enough about these great folks. Very thoughtful and deep on strategy. They take the appropriate amount of time to become well versed in your subject matter, giving them the best insights to develop the best assets and strategy for you. We continue to rely on their wisdom and intelligence for our fund development work.

  • Having just completed an extensive 18 month rebranding initiative, I couldn’t be more thrilled to recommend Prosper to agencies looking for quality, forward-thinking results. We found the entire team to be intuitive and extremely thorough in their efforts to understand our work and vision. Throughout the entire process they gained our trust and presented insightful copy, artwork and comprehensive roll out plans that impressed not only our staff, but our board of directors. We went into our new brand launch 100% confident with the results of their collective hard work and have received glowing reviews from our stakeholders. Prosper was the exact match we needed to confidently rebrand after 43 years.

  • It was a pleasure working with the entire team at Prosper Strategies. Their thoughtful approach, expertise, and knowledge of the philanthropic sector make them the ideal marketing agency for nonprofits to partner with when developing their brands, communications, and fundraising campaigns. Together we developed a true partnership. It really is amazing how much we accomplished and learned from each other. I am incredibly proud of the work that we did together, that we managed to have fun along the way, and most importantly how we successfully raised funds that are providing people with life-changing opportunities.

  • To us, it was really important to work with a team that took time to get to know our organization and our resident animals. Prosper not only got to know us, they became an important part of our team (and of course fell in love with the animals). They channeled this love and positive energy into everything they did for us. This resulted in the development of a strategic plan that had clear and actionable goals, along with a plan for measuring our progress. Additionally, we now have beautiful messaging and a marketing plan that will expand our reach. I would have no hesitation recommending Prosper Strategies.

  • Prosper Strategies helped us identify the attributes that make our organization truly unique, and assembled a marketing plan that effectively communicates these strengths to the public, other organizations and foundations. The messaging guides, calendars, and other materials created by Prosper are now central to IEC's communications strategy.

  • Prosper Strategies worked closely with us to listen and understand our organization’s needs, helping us identify our communications priorities and providing actionable steps that we could achieve given our capacity. We are incredibly pleased with the vision and mission statement that they crafted with us, which more accurately and beautifully reflect who we are, what we do, and how we aspire to make an impact!

  • We’re extremely fortunate to have Prosper Strategies as our communications partner. Thanks to their media outreach efforts, the team at Prosper helped put Challenge Detroit on the map and their ongoing efforts ensure donors, supporters, the Detroit community and well beyond know who we are and our commitment to bringing together a diverse group of leaders to make a positive impact in Detroit and the region.

  • Working with the Prosper Strategies team was an incredible opportunity for Rebuilding Exchange. It gave us a chance to dive into our mission and impact, and think about how to tell our story to folks who don't think about waste diversion every day...We view [our work together as] a catalyst for Rebuilding Exchange to scale our reach and increase the impact of our message.
