To say it simply, CCC is an evaluation and communications firm.
We help our clients define their purpose, measure their impact, and communicate their results through easy-to-read infographics and reports. As a firm, we have a wide project portfolio ranging from aging-in-place initiatives to youth programming to business development. We are founded on a social impact business model, which means we want to make the world a better place.
We deeply care about social justice and recognize the systematic structures in place that harm Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities. This is why we use a racial equity lens in all the work we do. It is important to hold ourselves and our clients accountable. We do this by educating when we can, pushing back when needed, and speaking up when necessary.
We also donate 1% of our proceeds to racial justice organizations and initiatives.
You may ask, how do social justice and racial equity relate to evaluation or communication practice? Well, from our experience, we have seen evaluations designed and communications reported in ways that harm, undervalue, and take advantage of the communities being served. This is our current status quo, and it is not okay. It has to change. This is why we do our work the way we do because we want to be apart of the solution, not the problem.
Please visit Community Centric Fundraising for more information, a new movement that has inspired thousands (including Coco Canary) to do better.
We are based in St. Paul, MN, and we acknowledge that we are on stolen indigenous lands. Home to the Dakota and Anishinaabe people. These people were the first stewards of the lands we occupy, and they are still here. We honor their connection to this land and their ongoing resilience in the face of violent colonialism.
