Mission, Vision, and Values

COG partners with a limited set of clients who share our vision for creating a world free from the threat of violence and discrimination in all forms, align with and uphold our values of inclusion, empowerment, resourcefulness, and sustainability, and seek a partner in the work

Multi-Stakeholder Campaigns

COG staff are well-versed in operating within in complex, multi-stakeholder environments. As part of our services, we make real-time data reports available to clients, and host weekly check-in meetings to update stakeholders on the campaign’s progress. In addition to hard numbers, we pass along compelling anecdotes collected in the field, which help make the case for your program’s powerful impact to sponsors, funders, or the press.

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

COG has a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, and our staff demographically reflect the diversity of our movement.  More than 50% of our staff at every level of the organization come from communities of color. We recognize that creating and maintaining an organizational culture that is welcoming and equitable for all employees is an essential component to both recruiting a diverse staff, and benefiting from the value that their perspectives add to the organization.  

Your Partner in the Work

COG is more than just an executor – we want to be your partner to build field plans, identify communities to canvass in, and support your campaign logistics from start to finish. In addition to managing the day-to-day work of the canvass, our services include brainstorming and feedback on messaging, timing, and strategy. We also offer unparalleled transparency into the program, keeping you up to date with detailed data reports, frequent communication, and want your involvement at every step. We are here to help you win, and we’re eager to partner with you around the best way to reach your goals.

A Learning Organization

Our staff frequently communicate across teams and functions to learn from one another, share best practices, and inspire or challenge each other to do their best. We are excited not only to support you in this campaign, but to build capacity for your partners and our team to win in the future.

A Smart Investment

Our focus is on using your money wisely to achieve the best possible results. COG has no owners who take a share of our profits; instead, when we save, we reinvest in your program to meet or exceed goals for less, and boost our efficiency to keep pricing low.
