Locally PRoud Competition

About HKA's 30th  

Celebrating 30 years of consistency and reliability, Orange County-based HKA, Inc. Marketing Communications is an award-winning agency with a reputation for excellence. Founded by former journalist Hilary Kaye, HKA instills professionalism and integrity into every campaign, project and relationship, successfully enabling clients to leverage marketing and communications strategies to support critical business objectives. Throughout Hilary’s career, she has been inspired by the dramatic impact nonprofits make on the community. In turn, HKA has fostered and maintained working partnerships with an array of local nonprofits, with the agency guiding their marketing and communications efforts to help increase visibility and ultimately create even more impact.

Have you seen Locally PRoud in the news?

To commemorate its 30-year milestone, HKA developed the “Locally PRoud” program to give back to the community that has supported HKA’s success over three decades. Locally PRoud provided Orange County nonprofits an opportunity to win a yearlong campaign with HKA that includes a custom strategic public relations and marketing plan and tactical support in the areas they select. All HKA labor during the 12 months will be included at no cost to the winning nonprofit.

Beginning July 1, 2014, qualifying nonprofits submitted a short video that illustrated why and how a custom campaign would benefit their organization.

Eight finalists were chosen and through a combination of public voting, a panel of judges and internal evaluation, a winner was selected!

We are proud to announce the winning nonprofit is Build Futures, with HKA beginning its philanthropic program on January 5, 2015.
