Our Capabilities

We help you unleash your potential.

From effective advocacy to risk management, Apollo offers a full range of solutions to meet the needs of charities, non-profits, associations and other public benefit entities.

Advisory & Strategic Consulting

We provide sound counsel to boards and leadership teams of charities, not-for-profits, and associations who need to overcome serious strategic obstacles to get back on mission, improve impact and outcomes, or adapt to a changing world.

What sets Apollo apart from others is our public affairs lens to advisory: we plan around the real life political, cultural, and attitudinal barriers which jeopardize even the best laid plans.

Government Relations

Charities, non-profits, and associations are more impacted by government decision-making than any other single sector. From program funding for charities to scope of practice for regulated professional associations, keeping government aligned is table stakes for public benefit enterprises.

Apollo's team of consultants know government, both from the inside as former elected officials and political staffers, and from the outside as campaigners and issue advocates. We'll help you hone your message, build winning relationships, and find success with government through smart strategy and clever tactics.

From campaign strategy and opinion research through to broadcast-quality creative that delivers sizzle alongside substance, Apollo has the in-house talent and skills to deliver results.

Our team are campaigner at heart: we've won election campaigns, forced governments to back down on contentious issues through pressure campaigns, and recruited more than a million Canadians to various movements and causes.

Strategic Communications & Issues Management

Threats to reputation and operational risks can pose an existential crisis to charities, non-profits, and associations. It only takes one risk event to tarnish a hard-won reputation, destroy a national brand, or cause governments, donors, and volunteers to step away. In today's media environment, public benefit organizations face exponentially higher levels of scrutiny.
Apollo's team has advised some of Canada's largest companies and associations, helping them communicate through high-risk events with success. From media training to crisis simulations, our team is ready to help prepare you for scrutiny.

IT, Software & Cybersecurity

Technology is improving (and complicating) every aspect of charity, non-profit, and association operations. From custom advocacy software to managing cybersecurity and privacy standards for organizations serving vulnerable populations, public benefit organizations face tough choices and limited resources in ensuring they meet increasingly stringent compliance standards.

Apollo's team has the decades of experience required to assist your organization in mitigating risks and selecting the right cost-effective and performant solutions needed to help you focus on what's important: delivering impact.
