Case Studies

Global Impact

The Situation

Global Impact has been in business for more than 60 years. Before reaching out to Claxon, they had evolved their lines of business and were looking to strategically position their work and offerings. To lay a solid foundation and grow into the next 60 years, they needed to revisit and refresh their branding, marketing, and messaging and bring all the elements into alignment internally and externally.

The Solution

Claxon worked with leadership, staff, and the board of directors to co-create positioning and values statements, as well as a tagline that got right to the heart of what Global Impact does. The messaging was then optimized for different mediums including their brochure, sales sheets, and pitches.

The Results

Shortly after working with Claxon, Global Impact acquired Geneva Global. Now they can communicate effectively: inspiring greater giving for 400+ partners in 150+ countries, resulting in nearly $2 billion raised for humanitarian causes around the world.

Gates Philanthropy Partners

The Situation

To reach its ambitious philanthropic goals, Gates Philanthropy Partners (GPP) needed to better define its value proposition. They needed clear, compelling messaging about the why, what, who, and how of their wonderful work.

The Solution

Claxon worked closely with the GPP team to refine their brand and create messaging that would resonate with different audiences. The team was then able to use the messaging on their website and other external-facing platforms, as well as in one-on-one conversations with current and potential donors.

The Results

Since doing this work in 2017, GPP has seen steady year-over-year donation growth and has a consistent communications framework across each of its audiences.

Microsoft TEALS

The Situation

In 2020, Microsoft Philanthropies Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) Program turned 10. Much had changed over the years and they wanted messaging that honored the past, reflected the present, and positioned them for the future.

The Solution

Claxon gathered information and insight from internal and external stakeholders via an online survey and a series of facilitated workshops with the TEALS team. After analyzing the input, Claxon drafted and refined TEALS values, vision, mission, and purpose statements, a program descriptor/tagline, and high-level messaging for their key audiences.

The Results

The TEALS team now has greater alignment internally around program vision and goals. As such, external marketing and communications can be done faster, with more confidence and greater consensus. The TEALS Program is ready for the next 10 years!
