United Way of the National Capital Area

For more than five years, United Way of the National Capital Area (United Way NCA) turned to JR Communications to connect and collaborate with its eight regions and nearly 700 member nonprofits, and reach the millions of citizens within its DC metro footprint. We helped ensure that the good works of United Way NCA and its members were shared widely, cohesively and consistently by focusing on their on-the-ground impact.



New and energized relationships with elected officials, business and civic partners, and other local stakeholders. Validation of United Way’s vital role as a catalyst for positive change. Greater visibility and credibility for United Way NCA and hundreds of its member nonprofits.

“Clearly JR Communications is very results focused because their clients have a habit of rehiring them, year after year. You can’t, in DC or for that matter nationally, continue to be retained if you aren’t getting the job done.

JR Communications is consistently used by major organizations, companies, nonprofits and key stakeholders – that is, CEOs – for all the services JR Communications provides, which speaks to Julie’s and her firm’s ability to get tangible results and remain fresh, energized and creative.”
