Small Organization of the Year
Riff City Strategies
Riff City Strategies was founded to tackle the toughest societal issues facing our planet using the power of media, advocacy and storytelling. Driving positive societal impact, Riff City builds brands and campaigns that are changing the world.
Riff’s unique offerings include working with disruptive philanthropic and political funding organizations and coordinating directly with grantees to help tell their stories and amplify their impact. Often, grantees are women- and/or BIPOC-led organizations that do not have resources to engage a PR firm full-time. Riff has landed dozens of stories for these organizations and helped to mobilize more than $120 million in new resources to continue to fund their important work.
Over the past year, Riff City worked on a number of successful campaigns, including one that delivered more than 2.4 million meals to vulnerable residents in San Francisco. The organization also promoted new national models of community safety and alternatives to police to help those in crisis, while creating careers for and changing the perception of the formerly incarcerated and unhoused with Urban Alchemy.
Riff City partnered with the Donors of Color Network to build a climate movement that directs 30% of climate philanthropy and a new funding baseline of $120 million to BIPOC-led groups. The organization also helped raise awareness of the student mental health crisis and promoted new resources available to help schools combat it with Effective School Solutions.
Riff City is currently accepting new partners who need help building a movement or brand that can change the world, please reach out to us at: email@example.com.
