How We Work
We do the things we’re good at and enjoy doing in-house. For everything else, we're constantly on the lookout for fresh talent or skilled professionals who want to make a difference in their community--especially in these times.
For its clients, Policy Catalyst keeps ears to the ground on the most affordable and effective tools and resources (ex: free tools for making infographics; all of the places to look for volunteers; all of the venues for hosting events, and more).
For highly technical or specialized services such as video production, website design, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and graphic design, Policy Catalyst taps into our network of highly skilled professionals or promising students who are prepared to help with a given project. Depending on the type of project, we may also negotiate group rates or donated services for members--that's in the works. The point is to bring all the best talent to bear on nonprofits' policy priorities and campaigns. Some people call this "social innovation." We call it the Catalyst "sweet spot."
