What We Do

We only work with nonprofit organizations, so we understand what it takes to turn marketing and communications into tools for mission impact better than anyone else. We work with organizations like yours in four distinct ways:

Brand Strategy and Marketing Planning

A brand is so much more than a logo, name and color scheme. It’s a promise that conveys who you are, what you do and why it matters. It’s also a key that unlocks a nonprofit’s mission and values for its stakeholders. We help nonprofits like yours refine or completely reimagine their brands in order to achieve greater impact.

Then, we work in partnership with our nonprofit clients to develop marketing and communications plans that align with their strategic plans and help them meet their most important goals.


If you need an agency to help you bring the strategies and plans we’ve built together to life, Prosper Strategies may be your perfect partner. Every day, our team of skilled marketers implement campaigns that involve tactics like inbound marketing, content marketing, media relations, social media, direct mail, digital advertising and web and search optimization for nonprofits like yours.


If your team has the resources and desire to fulfill your organization’s day-to-day marketing needs, but lacks the necessary structure or skillsets, our Marketing Enablement services may be a great fit for you. Get the training and coaching you need to make marketing and communications bigger contributors to your nonprofit’s mission.

Education and Insights

Marketing is a rapidly evolving practice in nonprofit sector. We’re committed to helping you stay ahead of the curve with research, insights and other resources that will empower you to work smarter. We also speak at conferences and events across the country and host regular webinars focused on helping you prepare for the future of nonprofit marketing.
