Getting the job done.

Association Management & Administration

Dovetail Partners knows what it’s like to manage 501(c) and 527 organizations, of all sizes. Dovetail can manage ongoing programs and operations; monthly board and committee meetings, newsletter and social media communications; external relations; budgeting and reporting compliance; vendor procurement; special projects; and media appearances.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Additionally, for most membership-based organizations, the cycle of membership recruitment and membership retention is a relentless one. Dovetail Partners is experienced with conducting membership roll audits; helping to “categorize” and maintain members by their “currency;” scheduling donor solicitations; and developing plans for non-dues revenue fundraising – including writing grant proposals!

Public Affairs

Community Relations

Coalition Building

Dovetail harnesses long-standing relationships with elected leaders, government officials and other decision-makers at the local, state and federal levels to cut through bureaucratic red tape or to influence public policy, by providing pertinent information and lobbying on issues or procedures that affect our clients.                                                                                                                                                                                                                              At the community level, the relationship a company or organization has with the people who live in the area in which it operates can be the determining factor in garnering support from elected officials, changing public policy and shaping or mobilizing public opinion. Dovetail reaches out to residents and well-respected stakeholders to raise awareness, educate, and establish coalitions.

Political Consulting


Independent Expenditures

Our extensive, award-winning experience with political campaigns spans decades. From day-to-day management and operations to overall strategic and tactical consulting, Dovetail can guide your candidate or ballot measure campaign every step of the way.                                                                                                                                                                  Looking to influence an election from the outside? Effectively promoting the election or defeat of a political candidate or ballot measure – completely independent of a candidate or authorized committee – and staying within legal guidelines requires the knowledge and expertise Dovetail brings to the table.

Strategic Communications & Targeted Digital Advertising

Dovetail is uniquely positioned to help clients reach the right audience at the right time and at the right place.
