Communications & engagement campaigns

We help nonprofits, universities, medical centers, and businesses lacking in-house sustainability or communications expertise launch new green initiatives, promote climate solutions, scale best practices, write winning grants, and craft compelling content. From communications strategy to branding to writing, we offer personalized, hands-on service that delivers a bigger impact.

Launch New Initiatives

Launching a new green program or initiative? Green Impact can create a communications strategy and deliver a fresh brand, catchy messaging, and new collateral that will increase visibility, action, and engagement. Click HERE to see examples from the launch of USF's Office of Sustainability.

Content Creation & Success stories

We bring your success stories to life, transform complex topics into clear reports, highlight best practices, and create blog posts that get attention. From white papers to original Website content, we can help you engage a broader audience. See recent writing examples HERE.



Green Impact has a track record of creating fundraising strategies and writing winning grant proposals. We have helped the Sonoma Land Trust, Trust for Public Land, and EcoAmerica raise millions of dollars for new partnerships, restoration projects, urban green infrastructure programs, and sustainable agriculture. See details on fundraising projects HERE.

Employee Engagement

We can make your commitment to sustainability more visible to employees, reduce waste, and increase engagement. Click HERE to learn more about our engagement plan and click HERE to learn more about our workshop offerings. We are offering our Make Green Happen Two-Day Workshop March 14-15 in NYC.

Green Impact helped launch our new sustainability Website, provided guidance on our green brand, and produced our first sustainability video, which has been viewed over 2,500 times. Deborah has brought our successes to life, crafting attention-getting messages and original online success stories that have increased our monthly Web traffic from 2,000 to 10,000 monthly visits and increased engagement on such programs as the LivingGreen office certification program, saving UCSF over $300,000.

Sustainability Manager, University of California, San Francisco

We didn’t know how to communicate our sustainability programs to our constituent groups. Deborah was the perfect person to help us shape our messaging and push that message out.
