Associates and Partners

A famous line from Beth Kanter and Allison Fine's book The Networked Nonprofit reads, "do what you do best, and network the rest".  At Darim, we're strong believers in this motto, both to keep our work high quality, focused and efficient, and also to bring the best resources of the wider nonprofit and for profit fields to benefit the Jewish community.  Thus, we seek to develop partnerships with a diverse set of organizations and individuals to bring their talents into our projects.  Below are a sampling of our recent partnerships.


Big Duck is a fantastic branding and communications firm based in Brooklyn, New York, that works with nonprofits of all sizes to help them increase visibility.  Big Duck combines nonprofit expertise, strategic thinking, and creative solutions to address  communications challenges.   Darim has partnered with Big Duck in the AVI CHAI Foundation Technology Academy.  Working with 10 day schools in the New York and New Jersey area, Big Duck coaches worked one-on-one with school leadership to mature their social media use, create a social media project, and drive a Causes based fundraising campaign on Facebook.  Learn more at and at @bigduck
