Communities thrive when they have strong leadership from foundations and non-profit organizations. Bichsel Public Affairs works to maximize the effectiveness of corporate giving, foundation grant-making and non-profit services.

One of the biggest challenges foundations and non-profit groups face is aligning their messages and how those messages are delivered to what it is that they most want and need to do. At Bichsel Public Affairs, we employ a variety of ways to help foundations and non-profits become more effective. There are reasons that their voice gets muffled. We identify those reasons help foundations and non-profits overcome them.

In addition to our public relations and advocacy resources, some of the tools we use for our foundation and non-profit clients include:
  • Communications audit to align messages with actions and goals
  • Educate media and public opinion on sensitive and complex issues
  • Expand partnerships and funding base
  • Government relations to public policies
  • Raise public awareness to develop support for action or programming
  • Stakeholder interviews and focus groups

We also provide services to corporations seeking to align their philanthropy with their core mission.
