Nonprofit Strategy & Marketing

Nonprofits today are facing greater challenges than ever. With increasing numbers of organizations operating in crowded issue spaces and competing for shrinking funding, nonprofits must find ways to differentiate. Organizations that lack a clear, focused strategy can find themselves at a disadvantage—unable to cut through the clutter and gain critical support of key stakeholders.
That’s where Cone Communications comes in. For nearly three decades, Cone has partnered with nonprofits of all shapes and sizes to help them increase their societal impact. We understand the unique constraints that nonprofits face and how to overcome barriers—both internal and external—to make your organization more successful.  As your partner, we work to help you define, hone and execute strategic plans and award-winning campaigns that engage consumers, attract and retain corporate partners and drive your social impact objectives. Whether working to create a strong brand identity, leverage your communication resources effectively against your strategic goals, or develop robust partnership and sponsorship strategies, we seek to increase the relevance of your organization and align your mission-based services with the interests of your stakeholders.
