"MDC was such a great source of energy, inspiration, knowledge and deep experience for every member of  my team. They helped us through a challenging transition, made our grantees work come alive, shaped our research and brought thousands to engage with us on social media."

Nicole Taylor, CEO, Thrive Foundation (former)

"MDC communications support enabled one of our foundation initiatives to successfully evolve into an independent coalition. Today, aided by MDC’s counsel, the Oakland Literacy Coalition has launched a new strategy, brand identity and website that empowers the coalition to work together so that all of "Oakland kids learn and love to read.”

Rhonnel Sotelo, Executive Director, The Rogers Family Foundation

"We are a start-up. From the moment I met with Melissa to think about our communications, to today, MDC has been an excellent thought-partner and collaborator, helping us think through all of communications and execute on our many competing priorities for our needs–in identity, website and content." 

Catherine Atkin, Executive Director, The Early Learning Lab

"To leverage CYW’s thought leadership on ACEs and toxic stress, MDC collaborated with us to create and build our national, #ChildrenCanThrive campaign. Thanks to their solid content and digital strategy, the campaign far surpassed expectations bringing thousands of pediatricians and Moms into CYW’s network. We appreciated their focus, effectiveness and strategic thinking."

Chris Padula, VP, Development & Communications, Center for Youth Wellness

"MDC collaborated with our team to create a targeted approach–appealing directly to what matters most to those who hire, making a good hire for their company.

MDC created and effectively shepherded this new campaign strategy on LinkedIn where we reached almost a half a million viewers and engaged more than two thousand HR professionals whom never engaged with us before. We loved working with Melissa–her smarts, energy, attention and creativity–were infectious."
