Raised for Non-Profits

Hey there, I’m David Oñate. I’ve spent the last 15+ years in the for and non-profit sectors, helping organizations big and small stand out from the crowd to share their passion. My happy place is the intersection of strategy, creativity, and integrated marketing — while I not so secretly love digital and tech solutions. While no two answers to a challenge may be the same, isn’t that the fun part? Enjoy poking around my site, and if you’re feeling brave, drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you!
I started my career in the for-profit sector at Discovery Communications before moving to non-profits. Since then, I’ve held progressive marketing, fundraising, communications, and advocacy roles. I enjoy mentoring young professionals by sharing my experience, starting as an individual producer myself. I’ve led fantastic teams, traveled to fun places, and won some cool awards — now, let’s create our own success story.

      I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dave to conceive and create numerous outstanding, award-winning digital campaigns. Dave is extremely intelligent, well-spoken and possesses a deep understanding of web technology, design and content. Over the last few years, I’ve valued his skillful versatility in digital marketing. Dave thrives in a team environment and enjoys bouncing ideas back and forth, but he also ultimately knows when and how to take the lead, providing insightful solutions to elevate all aspects of our creative. His capabilities are clearly fueled by a deep interest in all forms of new media. Anyone interested in elevating their brand through the digital sphere would benefit from working with Dave.

                Aaron Garnett

                Senior Director, Strategy & Analytics

                  I had the pleasure of working with David on the launch of a departmental web project. The project required interfacing with business leaders and executives to gather high-level requirements, and translating these into specific directions to designers and corporate IT staff. I was very impressed with David's agility at negotiating and resolving the creative and technical problems that this project posed. The result was an effective, well-executed web-based communication platform that is now used globally by the operations department; I do not believe that the project would have been successful without David's knowledge of web programming concepts and his finesse in dealing with the nuances of the creative process.
