Our goal is to help save local history and the groups working to preserve it, but we also understand the constraints that may prevent many organizations from exploring outside help. This is why we scale our services based on your organization's goals, needs, and resources. Using maturity models specifically developed for history-based organizations, we assess where you are in the areas of Revenue Generation, Digital Marketing, and Organizational Functionality in order to prioritize ensuing efforts.

Rather than asking you for a big commitment, however, we start with small engagements aimed at providing measurable value without exposing you to large financial risk. We believe in delivering tangible results which is why for longer-term engagements, Historia Inspired offers a performance-based pricing model, making us partners with skin in the game.

Check out the maturity models to see the path from Peril to Relevance to Growth to Sustainment for your historic nonprofit or organization.
