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."- Rebecca Singbeil, Communications Manager, Children and Youth in Challenging Contexts Institute - Give Agency client
Talent, experience, and learning in one place! At The Give Agency everyone has something to offer, and gain. Be it a day, or the full week, this event is not to be missed. Strengthen your skills, expand your connections and helping your community by doing what you love doesn’t happen every day."

Wow! … I’m still abuzz over last week’s Give Agency session with FEED NOVA SCOTIA, and the many marketing and communication ideas that sprung up during our short time together. It was humbling to be on the receiving end of so much time and talent, and inspiring for us to experience how others see us and our opportunities. We came away feeling like we had the entire industry on our side, infused with enthusiasm and a can-do attitude. From apples and shopping carts, to potlucks and kitchen parties … you helped to unlock the magic of food. - Nick Jennery, Executive Director, Feed Nova Scotia
The Give Agency gives you a chance to turn everything else off, and for a brief time, help out a worthy cause. You’ll collaborate with a group of talented people you may never have worked with before and be inspired by a client that is simply excited to have access to your thinking. You’ll be surprised by what you can accomplish in such a short time. It doesn’t happen every day. - Albert Ianni, Freelance Creative Director, Halifax, - Give Agency participant
What I loved about the Give Agency process is that it was just as rewarding for the volunteers as it was for the not-for-profit organizations it supported. It was an invigorating experience to step out of world of the industry I was so used to supporting, and try to find solutions to the unique challenges that another organization faces. It was an opportunity for me to step back, re-frame my thinking and collaborate with talented people with various backgrounds and skill sets - and it was absolutely refreshing. I left the experience proud of the ideas we were able to share with such deserving organizations, but also re-energized and excited to return to my office. Looking forward to participating again!” - Kristie Forbes, Business Marketing Manager at Eastlink, - Give Agency participant
