Marketing makes a difference.

You’ve recognized a problem you’re unwilling to watch persist. Families struggling to figure out where they’ll sleep each night. Ecosystems so ravaged by pollution they may not exist for the next generation to enjoy. Young people unable to break the cycle of gang violence or drug addiction. You’ve set out to find a solution, and your organization is working every day to make change happen. But your nonprofit can’t achieve its true potential until you fully leverage the power of marketing.

That’s where we come in. Prosper Strategies helps nonprofits like yours use marketing and communications to move your mission forward.

  • 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.

  • Thanks so much for your hard work, Prosper! Clearly it was a good partnership, as we cannot bear to part from you 🙂 We've implemented a chunk of the digital marketing plan in the run-up to the screenings, including digital ads tests (running now), email push for the premiere, and basic website updates. Once we've jumped the first hurdle we're looking forward to deepening that work.

  • 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.

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.
