About Us

30 Years of Calling for Progress

Calling for a Cause

For 30 years, Telefund has run groundbreaking communications campaigns while remaining true to our public interest mission.  Founded and led by individuals with decades of non-profit and electoral campaign experience, our mission is to provide the highest possible quality work to clients who seek to advance progressive causes or promote the public interest.

Why we Work

Over the years we’ve worked with hundreds of organizations and campaigns focused on tackling some of the biggest issues facing our country and our world. From protecting old-growth forests, to fighting for equal rights for all Americans, to electing candidates that stand strong on issues that matter, we’ve been on the front lines (and the phone lines) of social change since 1988.

Quality Matters

Our calling staff is trained to compellingly present issues and raise funds in a manner that exceeds our clients’ expectations for professionalism, accuracy and results. Our account staff is trained to manage campaign details with a responsive, can-do attitude. Our approach to caller training and campaign management has earned us a reputation as a firm that can deliver quality results.
