We focus on new thinking.

Because with new thinking comes new ideas … which leads to new solutions.

And that’s where winning strategy matters.
And when smart creative begins.
And why meaningful messaging forms.
And how integrated design happens.
And that’s what we do.
We like to think new.
With you.

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.
So here’s some samples of our thoughts instead:

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
