Nonprofits & Community Involvement

JohnstonWells has long assisted clients in developing smart community relations and philanthropy programs, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it’s the smart thing to do. Community involvement is a meaningful, essential rung on the reputation-building ladder. Our community relations expertise has been honed by years of experience in counseling Mile High United Way, the Denver Art Museum, the Boys and Girls Club, the Denver Botanic Gardens and other nonprofit organizations. JohnstonWells was the 2003 National Philanthropy Day Award winner for Outstanding Small Business in Colorado.

Our signature “Cocktail Talk” program has been particularly popular among nonprofit organizations. Built on the premise that word-of-mouth works, the program aims to familiarize employees, volunteers and board members with the organization’s core messages, ensure the messages are understood, teach participants to easily incorporate the messages into social conversation, and make messages easy to remember. We have conducted Cocktail Talk for dozens of organizations in Colorado.
