Bringing Communications Savvy to Your Social Impact Work
The most effective social impact programs incorporate a strategic communications capability from Day One.
Miller Ink and its sister social impact agency, Ethos Giving, have decades of experience doing just this: designing and implementing social impact programs and bringing them to life with compelling communications.
We operate a unique partnership between two firms at the leading edge of our fields that leverages a deep knowledge of both strategic communications and social impact to help you give—and tell your story—better.
We’re steeped in best practices of social impact communications—because we helped create them.
The Miller Ink-Ethos Giving Advantage
Miller Ink and Ethos Giving were founded by Nathan Miller and Emily Kane Miller, experts at the center of the rapidly changing communications and social impact landscapes. Our agency collaboration was built to push forward the field of social impact communications and enrich your social impact storytelling.
Miller Ink supports high-profile individuals, nonprofits, and companies to distill their messages, reach their audiences, and tell their stories better. We have supported dynamic social impact communications for hundreds of clients across the nonprofit, public affairs/advocacy, philanthropic, and corporate spaces.
With a range of experience supporting small and midsize companies, large corporations, foundations, and high-net-worth individuals, Ethos Giving helps your team identify relevant social impact opportunities and build effective programs that meet the needs of all stakeholders.
Ethos Giving was founded by Emily Kane Miller, who has built a career at the forefront of social impact. With deep experience in government, advocacy, nonprofit, corporate, and philanthropic work, Emily has a unique ability to envision and steward philanthropic contributions that maximize benefit and value for all.
Previously, she served as vice president of philanthropy & community affairs at The Wonderful Company. Emily led the organization’s award-winning philanthropic efforts, which ranged from paradigm-changing, place-based work, to branded community giving programs, to transformative institutional contributions.
Where chaos exists, we create order.
You don’t need to know exactly how to act on your vision for good. All you need is a commitment to making an impact. We’ll help you chart a course to your social impact goals and translate even the most aspirational ideas into tangible campaigns that deliver big results for communities and stakeholders.
Our team knows more, we care more, and we have a better process.
We go deep with our clients.
Every client is different. Understanding their unique positioning and mandate for impact is central to our work.
We listen and learn to truly understand our clients and their sectors and produce work that comes from a position of knowledge and deep thought. Our approach is never superficial: We’re a strategic thought partner that commits as much time as necessary to understand your mission, community, campaigns, and stakeholders. We build and describe your campaigns in a way that closely aligns with your audiences’ motivations and goals to advance both your social impact and operational objectives.
Social impact doesn’t happen in a vacuum. We read between the lines and see the full field to ensure your social impact and communications campaigns resonate with everyone involved, from your employees and shareholders to your communities and nonprofit partners.
We harmonize your social impact work within your organization and contextualize it within the world more broadly.
Social impact is evolving rapidly. The days of simply cutting a check are behind us; social impact work is now embedded into every layer of modern organizations. In this rapidly shifting landscape, we help to articulate how your social impact efforts work together to create a coherent narrative in synch with the social impact and business spaces.
We develop dynamic impact reports and associated communications collateral campaigns – from websites and videos to social media to in-person activations. Learn more about our unique approach to impact reports.
