It’s not quite summer yet but, friends, we sure are making a splash together. Thanks to the buzz created by Intesa’s clients, friends, and extended network, our new Seas the Day one-time public relations product has us shoulder-deep in new missions to support.
When we were dreaming up Seas the Day, we hoped to attract small businesses and nonprofits that need a quick and strategic wave of public relations work.
We thought about what communications assets they likely had on-hand, where we could fill the gaps, and what kind of expertise would make the biggest difference for them. We also created an ocean of water puns 🌊💦
And it’s working! Here’s a sampling of our recent Seas the Day catch:
transcenDANCE Boogies into a New Home 👯♀️
TranscenDANCE Youth Arts Project has been guiding young people in underserved San Diego County communities to transcend barriers, expand their ambitions, and create positive change through dance and performance. On April 16th, they officially cut the ribbon on a 2,000 sqft. program and performance space located in Lemon Grove where they also offer holistic programming that includes access to mental health services. It was great to support an organization that is uplifting the next generation.

Mission Driven Finance Marks Big Milestones 🤩
Mission Driven Finance is San Diego’s leading impact investment firm that fills the gap between philanthropy and traditional investments—commonly known as “impact investing”. In March, our Make a Splash package helped them tout five years in business and $10 million in loans deployed into the community. We also announced their goal to double that investment over the next year. We can’t wait to see what they do next!
