Government & Non-Profit Copywriting

Values to uphold. A community to serve and help. Precision in your messaging can change the world.

The Public Needs to Know Let us Channel Your Mission—and Simplify the Facts

Whether it’s about alleviating homelessness or instructing residents how and when to put the trash out, we will paint the big picture—and fill in important details with clarity and confidence.

For government, we helped one agency partner write and relaunch an informative website for the Department of Sanitation New York (DSNY), executing our partner’s content strategy, clarifying dense information for an inquiring public—and earning our partner (and ourselves) heaps of praise from the marketing team. More recently, we helped another agency partner to inform New Yorkers of a new way to pay their subway fare, for New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

For not-for-profits, we’ve contributed to record-breaking fundraising campaigns by ghostwriting speeches given by executive directors, senior staff, and honorees at the galas that fund their beneficiaries for the months to come—and provide crucial operating expenses. We once wrote a video script commemorating President Obama for eight remarkable years. The video was shown when he was named the 2016 Champion for Global Change, the highest honor to be bestowed by the U.N. Foundation.

Institutional Content Writers

More recently, we penned an intranet site for a prominent New York City non-profit, clarifying procedures while uniting disparate employees—and rousing them anew with the mission they all share. We’ve written annual reports, supported rebranding with fresh copy, and tackled a 2,000+ page website eco-system for one of the nation’s most prominent and exceptional healthcare systems.

As a certified Minority-Owned and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE and WBE) in New York City and New York State, we are particularly excited about helping government agencies meet their diversity quotas.

Have a look at some of the ways we’re helping impact communities for the long haul.

Our Client The largest transportation network in North America, New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), serves 15.3 million people. Many of these are commuters that spend far too much time losing MetroCards or re-swiping their cards before the subway doors close. 

U.N. Foundation

Synopsis We can’t say who and we won’t say where. But we’re a marketing company through and through, and we’d be disappointed if we couldn’t tell you this story. The Challenge A dear client, a top notch entrepreneur, asked us to ghostwrite a non-political article for a prominent political publication.

Department of Sanitation NYC
