Not-for-profits & charities

Charities and not-for-profits rely on donations from government, foundations, individuals and businesses. However, many are not fully equipped with the necessary skills, resources, and time to efficiently reach their funders. Ironically, the strength and health of organizations hinges on how well their relationship with funders is cultivated.

Key challenges


Increasing financial stability is the core goal of many organizations in the not-for-profit world. By developing an actionable plan for sustainable fundraising, charitable organizations are less at the mercy of the whims of funding bodies and more in control of their mission and how they achieve it.

Digital + Data

Viewing technology as an ally to maximize your mission is the new normal. It is no longer a nice-to-have element in today’s competitive landscape – your online presence and the responsiveness that technology allows is an important way to engage with your audience and partners. The use of technology enables you to better segment your audiences, respond to their philanthropic aspirations and improve your relationship with stakeholders.

Brand & cause awareness

Transparency develops trust. Telling human stories is a way to open up and connect with people who want to better understand how you make an impact in the world. By growing and engaging your audience, you can capture the hearts and minds of the public and the media.

Case study

Missing Children’s Network

For 33 years, the Missing Children’s Network has worked with families, law-enforcement, and social service agencies to assist in the search for missing children, and to educate the public about children’s personal safety and the prevention of their exploitation and disappearances.


“Working with Phil has been nothing short of transformational for Geordie Theatre. Although we are a well-established Theatre for Young Audiences with 40 years of history, many of our strategy, fundraising, and communications tools were not where we felt they should be a few years ago, when we started working with Phil. What has impressed me most about Phil is their comprehensive approach to our organization. They have provided invaluable guidance and hands-on support on everything from training staff to rewriting important policies as well as from improving the data we collect about our audiences to writing our first strategic plan. All the while, they have excelled at helping us understand how all of these elements influence one another and how, together, they ensure a stronger organization. Through it all, Kim has been our constant mentor, ambassador, and member of the Geordie family. She is relentlessly optimistic, creative, and professional. We are grateful every day for our partnership with Phil, and we know they will continue to help us achieve increasingly ambitious goals as an organization.”
