About Phil Communications

It’s in the name. Philanthropy is Phil’s priority, not a pad to their portfolio. They are non-profit communications experts: they craft stories to catalyze positive change for the triple bottom line. They help, they create, they activate. And above all, listen. Closely.

They offer their clients an understanding of the social economy landscape better than any profit-driven agency because working with social economy organizations is all that they do. And they love it. They bring non-profit best practices into the modern age by deploying strong stories leveraging relevant technologies, tools and strategies.

As a social business, our work is a tool for transforming society. We became a B Corp to be held accountable for our impact and to communicate our values to the communities we serve.

The Change We Seek®

Phil believes that business is a powerful tool for social change when decisions are made to benefit the community, not only the bottom line. Their team always has the bigger picture in mind.

Phil believes that their clients are changing the world and they position their business to best support that positive change. Thus, their work begins with their clients’ “why”. Phil’s team draws from the client’s vision, mission and values to make sure it carries through, across all the channels, all the way to the marketing and fundraising material. They develop strategies and solutions through analysis, research, and by asking smart questions to find thoughtful answers.

When these organizations consistently and effectively communicate their story, everyone benefits. By working with people who help people, Phil’s partnerships with social businesses and non-profits lift communities.
