We can help you put your world changing ideas into action.

Program Development

Sometimes an expert eye is all it takes to find the breakthrough you've been looking for. We provide new program planning, troubleshooting, program evaluation, fundraising, impact assessment, and strategic planning assistance to help your programs be more effective.

Policy Advocacy

From the policy newbie to the expert, we can help you increase your impact with our policy support team. Our team specializes in state or federal policy, including research, legislative agendas, policy briefs, legislator fact sheets, staff or volunteer training, and lobbying.

Writing and Social Media

Too many great ideas are stuck in research reports a handful of people will see. We specialize in high-impact reports, policy briefs, fact sheets, and infographics. We also provide traditional and social media outreach plans to make sure the right people see your work.

Imagine reaching your legislator at the touch of a button at the right time and with the right message. Dugan Bassett Consulting is exploring development of new services that will help nonprofits educate policymakers about community needs. Learn more.
