More than two decades ago, John Pannell had a vision. As the former VP of Development for National Easter Seal Society, one of the largest charitable organizations in the country, he knew firsthand the unique set of challenges non-profits faced every day. His vision — to create an agency that addressed those challenges — came true in 1985 when he started Newport Creative Communications.
Today, the agency is known throughout the non-profit industry as an award-winning, results-oriented, full-service provider of integrated direct response fundraising services. Named after the California community in which it was founded, Newport Creative moved to historic Duxbury, MA, in 1990, bringing with it the cutting-edge, entrepreneurial spirit that is central to its foundation.
Newport Creative is not structured like other agencies. We’re employee-owned, which empowers our people to give all of themselves as professionals to each other and to our clients. We have the flexibility to assemble the right team at the right time for you. As opposed to an in-house agency or an assemblage of independent consultants, Newport can always bring just the right resources to the table, regardless of an assignment’s size, scope or schedule.
John Pannell’s dream of an agency structured for your convenience and built for your success is a reality.
