Our Social Impact
Making a difference…
Have you sensed the increasing fragility of our world in recent years? Economic, racial, gender, and disability injustice, poverty, increased violence, and out of control mental health and substance abuse issues are plaguing our communities.
The team at Alford Creative believes that business holds a sacred responsibility to be a force of good in the world. To that end, we have a deep commitment to treat people well, to not be driven solely by profit, and to measure success by the way we touch the lives of those we encounter.
Alford Creative was founded in 2015 as a web design shop, but quickly shifted towards services that would increase our clients’ impact on the world. We are proud to join Pledge 1%, a global movement that is creating a new normal where companies of all sizes integrate giving back into their culture and values. For us, this includes serving:
We pledge to give back a percentage of our time, products and profit to organizations who support mental & behavioral health, neurodiversity advocacy and other causes we care deeply about.
This means ensuring team members are motivated & engaged, given the respect and flexibility to create positive work-life balance, and given opportunities for personal & financial growth.
Our Clients' Mission
We use our expertise to amplify the mission of organizations who are taking on some of society’s biggest challenges; mental and behavioral health, neurodiversity, wellness, youth development, aging and more.
Double Bottom Line
Alford Creative is for-profit on purpose, and adopts a double bottom line business model that focuses on fiscal health in order to be a force for good. Our mission includes improving the lives of our employees, our clients, their clients and our community.
Over 90% of our client base is made up of organizations with human-centered missions. We bring the best creative and digital practices into these organizations who have not always had the resources or expertise to reach the people they want to help.
