Hi all,

We see nonprofits dealing with the same challenges as all businesses: workforce shortages and economic ups and downs. Depending on their model, they’re competing for donors, grant funding, and resources critical to achieving their missions — in addition to their core programming. If you’re reading this, you know that trying to make the world a better place is not for the faint of heart.

Nonprofits are absolutely vital to our communities. From service organizations that provide safety nets to advocacy groups pushing for equitable policies, their role in our society can’t be overstated. Here at IMG, we work with people across issues, approaches, and geographies, and we’re consistently amazed by their creativity and dedication.

Our publications advance issues that matter. Nonprofit partners see us as key to their multichannel communications strategies. IMG’s community-driven, solutions-oriented reporting spotlights voices and work of nonprofit professionals, opening hearts and minds, informing decision-makers, and transforming narratives.

To those doing complex work for a better future: thank you! We see and appreciate you, and we want to tell your story.

Thanks for your attention and partnership,
Brian and Paul
Issue Media Group
