Increase the Pie Consulting Services

At Donovan Communications we believe that private investment in communities can benefit individuals living and working in those areas. Unfortunately, too often the economic advantages aren't communicated effectively and projects are defeated or delayed as a result.


For this reason, Donovan Communications launched Increase the Pie Consulting Services for companies seeking to explain to New York City government, religious, civic, and neighborhood leaders how their projects will increase the economic pie and benefit the communities in which they do business.


Eight million jobs have been lost in the United States since the Great Recession began in December 2007.

Manufacturing has been shrinking for decades and can't serve as the engine for new jobs, nor can the government, which is grappling with exploding deficits.


It will be up to the private sector to create new industries and jobs, which makes bridging the gap between companies and communities critical.


Donovan Communications has spent more than 10 years providing communications services to economic development groups and lenders serving entrepreneurs and small businesses in New York City, and nonprofits serving the City's most vulnerable residents. As a result, we understand the needs of ordinary people and how to find common ground between the private sector and the local residents.


We have a long a history of working with clients that have a double bottom line--businesses that judge themselves not only on their profitability but also on how they serve their neighbors.


Our clients believe businesses have an obligation to give back to the communities in which they work, and help improve the lives of those less fortunate. So do we. 

It's just good business. 


It's no secret that developers and businesses with deep roots in their community, that are involved in civic activities, and have a collaborative mindset are more successful with new projects than those that don't.


Representatives of Donovan Communications are available to meet with you, help you create an effective message, arrange meetings with elected officials and community leaders, write and distribute informative materials to the media, and share the benefits of your project.
