We believe ideas can change the world.
The Give Agency was built by three “ideas” people - a Creative Director, a PR & Communications Strategist, and a Filmmaker and Corporate Strategist – as a place where different creative disciplines could work together to help nonprofits solve their most pressing challenges.
As creative strategists and entrepreneurs, we all felt that great ideas could change the world. Turns out, we were right. During our first day of this little Give Agency experiment, one idea alone is on track to raise half a million dollars for our hometown food banks. And still other ideas are being implemented across Canada to fight things like hunger, poverty, war, education and other important challenges.
We’re now creating a movement for change where creative experts can donate their talents in a single, fun-filled day, and know that they’ve used their biggest gifts for good.
In just one year since launching, we’ve infused over half a million dollars worth of strategy, ideas and real dollars into nonprofits who otherwise couldn’t afford it. That’s the power of a great idea.
Working with the Give Agency had an immediate impact on our work. The session forced us to take a step back, look at the Network from an outsider's perspective, and see the things we were missing from being so embedded in the day-to-day work of the organization."

The Give Agency is powered by three Halifax entrepreneurs from three different backgrounds, who saw that the creative industry needed it’s own forum for giving back to the community, and a better way to work together.
