President and CEO Maria Rodriguez co-founded Vanguard in the late 1980s to make a difference in the world. Today, our small but committed firm is still doing just that. Here’s how:
We are constantly Motivated to bring our best. A good day is when we’ve been Impactful for our clients or our community. Our standard is to be Truthful, always. Being Friendly and Fun helps us enjoy our work and each other, and we take enormous pride in being People-First.
This is who Vanguard is. It’s in our culture and drives how we approach our work.
Our staff is deeply experienced in supporting nonprofit organizations, from managing against challenging budgets to meeting the changing needs of boards, members and partners. We likewise succeed in the complexities of government contracting, and get high marks on our ability to listen, respond and solve creatively.

(of working for social change)
Our dedicated team excels at crafting award-winning narratives and visuals that make a splash. Move the needle. Create a spark. We have fun doing it, and we mentor others along the way.
We also do it right: For more than 35 years, all of our approaches have stayed true to the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion. We want more voices, more points of view, more feedback.
This makes us better at our jobs, and makes our clients more impactful.
