Big ideas. Based on strategy.

We believe that strategic communications is first and foremost—strategic. That means we ground all of our recommendations and work in both deep issue expertise and a pragmatic approach to data gathering and discovery.

Message Development

To move the issues we care about forward, framing, language and key message development is essential. We know how to develop customized key messages by target audience that are simple, compelling and break through the clutter. See how we translate complex information into compelling and accessible messages

Communications Plans

In today's world, everyone is trying to accomplish more with fewer resources. A thoughtful, integrated communications plan establishes priorities and responds to budgetary needs. Our team takes pride in its practical and pragmatic approach to communications plan development. 

Place-Based Work

Whether it is in the urban neighborhoods of Los Angeles, rural communities organizing for collective impact, or multicultural and multilingual public education campaigns, our team knows how to plan and execute effective place-based campaigns.

Coalition Building

We helped write the book (literally) on collaborative funding and coalition building. It was called "Collaborative Philanthropies" by Elwood Hopkins. We know how to help you strategically organize, form and build funder collaboratives for maximum impact.

Strategic Counsel

Sometimes it is helpful to have an outsider's perspective on communications and development strategy—an educated and experienced soundingboard that has connections to other thought leaders and issue experts. That's us. We can help fine tune "the ask," make connections and open the doors to collaborations.

 

Few organizations can balance both the technical and strategic skills required for strategic communications with the interpersonal skills essential to building a successful collaborative and partner with others. But Hershey Cause Communications excels at both.
