ABOUT

Create Movements,
Cause Impacts.

 

CauseIMPACTS is a female-owned social impact strategy consulting firm based in Los Angeles, California. We are experts at developing cross-sector solutions to society’s most pressing social problems.  

At causeIMPACTS, we recognize that companies, organizations, government agencies, elected officials, donors, and movements rarely have the capacity, incentive, or strategy to work together in a way that maximizes impact. Our mission is to break down the silos that exist between sectors in order to motivate social innovation and drive social change.

CauseIMPACTS is a certified Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE). We are also proud to be a WBENC-Certified Women’s Business Enterprise.

1. EXPERT INSIGHTS

Our team’s first-hand experience in the private, public, non-profit, and academic sectors provides us with a nuanced understanding of the strengths and challenges of each sector and equips us with the skills and insights needed to cause impacts.

2. CROSS-SECTOR COLLABORATION

We work with a variety of stakeholders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to develop unique partnerships, leverage resources, and support innovative solutions that maximize your collective impact.  

3. DATA-DRIVEn

We value data because metrics communicate impact and provide evidence that what you are doing is working. We also value data that people can understand! 

 

4. PERSONALIZED STRATEGY

We do not believe in templates or one-size-fits-all solutions. We recognize that every challenge is unique and deserves a solution that is customized to suit your intended audience and programmatic needs, 

5. Sustainability

We help you create sustainable, long-term impact by providing you with the tools and resources needed to measure, increase, communicate, and sustain your impact. We believe strategic communications coupled with robust evaluation are the key to ensuring long-term success of projects. Therefore, we integrate these tools into EVERY client project.
