Ignite Strategies is a full-service, integrated marketing, communications and fundraising firm with offices in Harrisburg, PA and Scranton, PA.
As a firm, we limit the number of clients that we take on so that we can provide our clients with undivided attention that they deserve. This allows us to actively engage at every level of the campaign to develop winning fundraising, political, media and communication strategies.
Political campaigns are not a hobby for us. They are what we do 24/7. We take your campaign personally. You are not just a number to us. We take pride in providing one-on-one, individualized service for our clients creating strategies that win.
