Farr Marketing Group (FMG) is the foremost public relations (PR) / marketing firm for nonprofits in Southern California.  Over the past two decades we have helped upwards of 75 not-for-profit organizations of all sizes achieve the results they want.

Our experience spans every nonprofit segment including: health, substance abuse, special needs and intellectual disabilities, homelessness, affordable and senior housing, developmental disabilities, literacy, education, the arts, after school programs, aging, veterans rights, environmental, drug prevention, animal rights, career training and more.

Our clients operate locally, nationally and internationally.  We work with Boards of Directors, Executive Directors, CEOs, donors, public and private funders, staff and volunteers.

Every nonprofit has a mission and a cause.  That’s why we also represent cause-related campaigns led by attorneys, associations and law firms.  We have been involved in some of the most high-profile litigation cases on the West Coast.  Attorneys trust our understanding of the litigation process, our confidentiality and ability to structure legal communications strategies.

Testimonial from Design for Sharing, a nonprofit that introduces students from schools without music programs to classical music productions at UCLA.  Our services were sponsored by our client The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation:



Dear Mr. Goldwyn:

“On behalf of Design for Sharing, I thank you for making possible our feature story in the recent edition of the Los Angeles Times.  It’s difficult for smaller non-profits to get press coverage, but because of you, Design for Sharing was featured with an entire half page story with color photos…..

“Providing the services of Harvey Farr and the Farr Marketing Group was invaluable to us.  In our 35 year history, it’s the first time the LA Times has covered our organization. Mr. Farr was instrumental in obtaining the coverage and generously sharing his knowledge with us….

“Your additional support of a publicist was invaluable.  Countless readers learned about the good work Design for Sharing has been providing for 35 years.”  — Barbara Dobkin, President, Board of Directors
