When marketing meets community building.

Our clients don't just want more, they want to make a difference.

Since our founding in 2004, 3fold has been committed to contributing to thriving communities by working with bold brands to reach their goals while growing the economy and supporting community investment. Every member of the 3fold team shares this passion and dedication to being active in and bettering the community where we all live, work and play. It’s a commitment that gives us a unique, comprehensive understanding of the region and its residents beyond what research and demographics can provide.

This  approach has allowed us to work with numerous local, regional and global companies from a variety of industries. Whether we’re launching statewide or national campaigns, designing hyper-local strategies to increase our clients’ impact within specific communities, or connecting brands to the Sacramento region, 3fold has proven success in delivering solution-focused campaigns that generate revenue, capture opportunities, solve problems, and create positive community impact.

With budgets, timelines and goals as our starting point, we create custom solutions for every client. As a full-service, integrated marketing and communications firm, we are experts in developing research-based strategies and delivering top-notch creative design, digital deployment, public and media outreach, advertising placements, and community partnership connections that get the results our clients want.

We’re big fans of our hometown.
For the love of Sac…we heart:

Bicycles everywhere. Cheers of “Glory, glory, Sacramento!Pizza, coffee and biergartens. Music festivals. Baseball by the river. Taking a hike. The phrase: “Stingers up!” Under-the-overpass farmers markets. Truly inspiring community colleges. Development of arenas and stadiums. Small business-friendly congresswomen. 150,000+ trees.

Our Services

The two founding principles for the work we do at 3fold:

1. No recycled air.
Every client, every project, demands (and deserves) a custom solution to fit its unique need. Just because all the other agencies love a billboards-and-bus-sides campaign, it doesn’t make it the right solution every time. We treat our clients’ money like it’s our money. It’s an investment and we will work tirelessly to use it in the smartest, most creative ways.

2. Contribute to thriving communities.
The work we do is meaningful. While it must first meet our clients’ goals and needs, it should also impact their target communities in positive, impactful ways. Whether we’re talking philanthropy, participation or community development, our work contributes to thriving communities.

We might have overheard someone describe 3fold as "an idea oasis in a creative desert.” But sharing that would just be bragging, and that’s just so shameless.

Community Impact

Community is key.

We built our company on the belief that connecting with the community—not just knowing who to contact, but being an active participant within a community—is essential to running the most effective and integrated outreach campaigns.

We owe a big chunk of our success to the city’s leaders and our fellow businesses who nurtured us at the start and supported us as we grew. With heartfelt gratitude and an ever-present desire to give back, we’ve grown 3fold as a community-based business. From the start, we’ve ensured:

10% of our collective time, talent and treasure is reinvested each year with the nonprofits and community projects we believe are best shaping our city’s future for the better.

100% of our team volunteers or holds a leadership position in a local nonprofit organization.

3fold Connect:
Our Community Investment Initiative

3fold was founded on a belief that nonprofits deserved the very best of our experience and expertise, not what was left over.

You start with a vision — to change the world, to improve quality of life, to empower people to act and to make a difference in your community. But with limited resources and a greater demand for services, the vision looks bleak and dim, and the grind begins to wear you down.

Yet, you know your vision is attainable, and you see every day that the services you provide are still needed.

We get it. We can help.

3fold Connect combines our expertise in marketing strategy with extensive experience serving the nonprofit community to ensure that nonprofits and corporate social responsibility programs not only survive, but thrive in their communities.

In 2006, 3fold recruited some of the most experienced and innovative thinkers in the nonprofit arena to our team. With extensive corporate philanthropy expertise and experience with local, state and national organizations and foundations, the 3fold Connect team has elevated 3fold to a major agent of change throughout our region. And we’re just getting started.

At 3fold Connect we:
  • Create long-term sustainability and increase overall service capacity for community-based organizations.
  • Enhance the economic impact and voice of the nonprofit sector.
  • Develop strong, mission-focused board and leadership teams inside community-based organizations.
  • Guide corporate and foundation philanthropic programs to ensure their investments mirror their interests and make the biggest impact in the communities they serve.

We work with:
  • Health systems, community clinics and nonprofit organizations focused on health care access, the social determinants of health, and Affordable Care Act implementation.
  • Workforce development organizations, associations and national programs.
  • Corporations and philanthropic foundations, especially those focused on capacity building of nonprofits.
  • State and national associations that focus on economic development, quality of life, and education.

Our services include:
  • Nonprofit capacity building consulting
  • Corporate philanthropy and community benefit program consulting
  • Community initiative consulting
  • Health care consulting
  • Workforce development consulting
  • Training and facilitation
