At dovetail solutions we connect business to the community. We teach that the success we secure for ourselves is never really certain until it is secured for everyone. We explain the nature of community to our clients as a beneficial web of mutuality and encourage all of our clients to make investments in their social, philanthropic, and business surroundings. We firmly believe in the "bank balance" approach to community relationships. The "bank balance" approach focuses on making deposits or investments in the community before you make withdrawals. These investments take many forms and oftentimes involve time, talent, and money. At dovetail solutions, we try to embody the principles we teach and provide a dynamic example for our clients. Partnerships are almost always symbiotic, that is, a cooperative and interdependent relationship. For example, dovetail solutions is an active member of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS). SMPS is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving professional marketers and business developers. SMPS members form a powerful national network committed to enhancing their profession and sharing their knowledge and experience with their colleagues. By sharing our time and experience with other SMPS members, we are able to strengthen the marketing community while also spreading our civic responsibility ideals to our peers.

All of our staff is involved with the Denver Public Schools' School Partners Program, an entity that nurtures and sustains partnerships between DPS and the Denver community. The program creates tailor-made partnerships between schools and businesses. dovetail solutions provides volunteer time and in-kind contributions to Columbian Elementary. Specifically, we help with a morning reading program for second grade students and with public relations and branding efforts for the entire school.

dovetail solutions also provides in-kind assistance to the Morgan Adams Foundation. We work with the foundation on their annual fundraiser, the Concours d'Elegance. We provide all of the public relations support, branding, and marketing consulting services associated with the event. Last year, the Concours d'Elegance was a tremendous success, raising over $250,000.

dovetail solutions provides a great deal of support to the Young Philanthropists Foundation. We provide in-kind marketing, printing, and office space to the organization. The Young Philanthropists Foundation dedicates itself to engaging youth in philanthropy by creating opportunities for kids and their families to give back to their community.

In addition to the direct contributions of talent, time, and money, the dovetail solutions staff is also involved with a diverse group of community organizations.

Other memberships include the Children's Hospital, the Joy House, the Rape Assistance & Awareness Program (RAAP), and Hospice Metro Denver.
