We're marketers on a mission to help you move


Your organization isn't just like all the others.

You’re focused on more than maximizing shareholder profits and earning prestige. 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 a cycle of gang violence and drug addiction. You’ve set out to find a solution, and your organization is working every day to create a different future.

We exist to help you make that vision a reality.

Prosper Strategies isn’t like all the other agencies, either. We’re a Chicago-based marketing and PR firm that works exclusively with enterprising nonprofits and companies with a cause. We’re not interested in working in a world where success is defined by a single bottom line, but we do believe financial sustainability is a critical component of any mission, so we’re focused on helping our clients leverage marketing and PR to grow their income and their impact.

How We're Different

Prosper Strategies exists to help good organizations grow their impact. We’re uniquely successful at empowering nonprofits and social enterprises to succeed with marketing because it’s all we do.

Using our 4-D Approach™, we understand, align with and measure marketing and PR’s impact on the advancement of your mission and goals.


Prosper Gives Back

We’re a small company, but there is nothing that drives us more than our desire to give back and use our business as a force for good. That’s why we donate over 350 hours of time each year to organizations we care about through our two giving programs: Prosper Volunteer Days and Changemaker Marketing Grants

This year, our team has selected Lakeview Pantry and Open Books as the two benefactors for Prosper Volunteer Days, so you might see us out in the community stocking pantry shelves and helping kids develop reading and creative writing skills in 2018 (say hi!). 2018 Changemaker Marketing Lab Grant winners were announced on Giving Tuesday.
