When we launched Mission Partners in 2017, it was with a vision to build a business that was inextricably linked to our core values; a business that could be a force for good and that could help scale the impact of organizations like yours, through a special blend of strategic visioning, planning, and communications services. We know with certainty that when we live our values—fully and universally across our team—we can achieve our greatest impact, and 2019 was a solid reminder of that.

As we release this Social Impact Report, COVID-19 is challenging every single one of us, on many levels, and it will continue to challenge ourselves, our communities, our businesses, and our society for the balance of 2020 and beyond. What I know for sure is that our community is a profoundly kind one and we will rise from this. For Mission Partners, we’ve built our business on a commitment to using business as a force for good, and we don’t intend to stop now.

Community Impact

Mission Partners worked on 28 social impact projects in 2019 across our five core issue areas of sustainable communities, education and technology, health, journalism and the arts, and women and girls.  Services were provided to organizations such as The Universities at Shady Grove, The New York Foundling, NewsMatch, and Loyola University Maryland.

In the spring of 2019, we advanced our commitment to racial justice within our community through hosting Hear Her: A Call to Action on Maternal Mortality in the United States, a powerful community conversation on the soaring maternal mortality rates in the United States—especially among Black women. The panels were followed by an interactive community lunch designed to bring the conversation home, in a way that provided some basic tools to lead systems change efforts in our own communities through an anti-racist framework.

Mission Partners was also thrilled to add to our team through the hires of May Robinson, Director of Marketing, and Jessica Hassanzadeh, Director of Operations. They bring a wealth of knowledge to our organization.
