Our expertise

We empower nonprofits to deliver greater impact through our proven expertise in areas such as marketing strategy, fundraising communications and mission-centered digital experiences.

As partners, we identify opportunities, solve recurring problems and gain new insights that make them more relevant. And we get there through a spirit of collaboration with boards, leadership, staff and those served.


Nonprofit expertise shaped by OrgStory

OrgStory was founded in 2012 with the sole purpose of helping nonprofit organizations raise more money, attract more clients, increase awareness, change perceptions and impact change in their communities. In 2019, Magnetize acquired OrgStory to advance its strategic and creative expertise for client partners in the nonprofit industry.

All this to say, we know nonprofits, and we are committed to inspiring the sector and providing organizations with the support they deserve.
