Wachs Strategies transforms how companies and organizations shape social change and impact. Our five key service areas include:
Wachs Strategies works with clients to set goals, understand current business models and evaluate external landscapes to define organizational priorities and expertise. Our plans and recommendations are anchored in clear goals, budgets and processes to achieve measurable milestones and quantify success.
Advocacy & Communications
Wachs Strategies helps develop advocacy issue campaigns and positions clients alongside key players, including elected officials, industry leaders and philanthropy influencers, to accelerate mission impact. As specialists in federal, state and local policy agendas, we craft targeted advocacy and communications strategies to enhance programs and direct service models, as well as thought leadership and visibility and public-private partnerships.
Fundraising & Development
Big ideas require substantial and sustainable funding. Wachs Strategies works with development teams to identify and maximize diverse revenue streams. We develop fundraising resources, materials, and processes that celebrate organizational strengths with target prospects in mind. We create cases for support and package programmatic work.
Wachs Strategies specializes in the design of innovative, win-win public-private partnerships. Our nonprofit strategic planning consulting services span the full partnership process from market analysis and identification to outreach and negotiations. We connect nonprofit, government, philanthropies, and corporate players to advance shared goals.
Without strong leaders who prioritize social impact by setting a tone and culture that embraces the work, companies and organizations will not be as effective in truly making a difference. Our social impact consulting services inform leadership on strategy, executive positioning, and communications around social impact. Our team has experience working with executives at multiple levels with different styles and approaches.
