We're Your Nonprofit Tiger Team
Hi, we're CauseMic.
Founded in 2013, we're a growth consultancy made up of whip-smart, strategic thinkers with complementary superpowers to help your nonprofit or social impact company grow sustainably.
Our cross-functional areas of expertise in marketing, fundraising, and technology make our agile, tight-knit crew extremely effective at solving your problems and filling in the gaps alongside your team.
Custom Solutions, Rooted in Expertise
“What’s really unique about CauseMic is that they don’t have a one-size fits all approach. They really roll up their sleeves and get under the hood to understand all of the nuances of an organization.
They understand the players, get to know your mission, the internal constraints with regards your budget, people, or board of directors, and then they think strategically about what the right-size solutions are for your organization.”
Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, Team Rubicon
Shaping What’s Next in Philanthropy
Our CEO, Matt Scott, is a seasoned industry nerd and author with loads of innovative ideas and insights he shares with audiences at events like Dreamforce, Classy Collaborative, Twilio’s Signal and more. He’s a compelling speaker offering nonprofit professionals compelling ideas and tangible concepts they can apply. If you're interested, please reach out for more info.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Each and every day, our clients roll up their sleeves and get to work solving big challenges that face us all. While these folks are heroes and are making an undeniable impact, it’s important to remember we all have a role to play in making the world better.
At CauseMic, we want to live in a more just and equitable society, and are committed to playing our part in its transformation. After all, it’s part of our foundation and current state – our team is made up of individuals from different ethnicities, genders, sexualities, religious beliefs, nationalities, physical abilities, and more.
We are made better by diverse perspectives which is why we need folks around us with diverse experiences. We also believe that success is not final, and continue to seek ways to invest in ourselves and our clients to build a more just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive world. To do so certainly leads to better creativity and innovation, but importantly, it leads to folks living more fulfilled lives.
