The "Why" Behind What We Do


For our clients, education is a calling. The same is true for the team at the Donovan Group.

Beyond our expertise in survey research and communication and education policy, we are driven by the positive impact we’re able to have on schools and students throughout the country.

​Our firm was founded in 2004 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For several years, we focused on serving the needs of public schools and districts in our home state.


Later, we took what we learned to expand to other states, including Iowa, Pennsylvania, Illinois, South Dakota, California, Minnesota, Delaware, Idaho and Georgia. Along the way, we’ve added many truly talented and passionate education communication and school PR professionals to our team.


While the Donovan Group continues to grow, we remain true to our core principles of helping schools, districts and educational organizations tell their stories, engage their stakeholders and build greater levels of trust in their communities.​
