Past Work

Our Clients

We’ve helped social enterprises and philanthropies working to change the arc of opportunity in our schools, save endangered big cat species, build a grassroots environmental network, advocate for children in foster care, attack income inequality, and guide the implementation of the Affordable Care Act—just to name a few issues.

We work across social issues because we believe that building a society based on the principles of justice and equity requires that we pull many levers, not just one. Click on a link below to read a capsule project description. Since 2011, our clients have included:
