Joan DassinExecutive Director / Ford Foundation IFP
"At a time when media coverage focuses mostly on conflict and violence, Ripple used their contacts effectively to help IFP spread its positive message about linking higher education and social change. Working closely and effectively with our communications teams, Ripple was able to synthesize a lot of information into clear and appealing press materials. They were great collaborators and helped us set and reach achievable goals for press coverage. Working with Ripple Strategies gave a terrific boost to our media outreach and coverage."

Ripple constantly came up with new ideas and creative ways to generate press, while successfully managing the politics of a coalition with nearly 300 groups. They work really hard and don’t stop until they get the results they are looking for."
