Gambel Communications

Businesses Giving Back


Gambel Communications is a full service public relations agency specializing in media and community relations, branding and marketing, social media, special events and issue management.

Founded by Betsie Gambel, Gambel Communications is a recognized thought leader in helping for-profit clients reach marketing objectives through leveraging civic engagement and in positioning non-profits to attract for-profit contributions.

With deep experience in both the for-profit and non-profit arenas, Gambel Communications is uniquely suited to connect businesses and organizations for mutual benefit.


Gambel Communications understands that when for-profits and non-profits work together, the result is stronger communities. Our mantra is “Doing good is good for business.” Working with both sectors to leverage philanthropy is at the heart of what we do.

Aligning the right donor with the right recipient requires careful consideration. Be thoughtful in your philanthropy. Be strategic. Be good stewards. Be authentic. Giving back to the community through our personal commitment of time and resources is as important to us as guiding our clients to do the same.


The Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF), whose mission is to create a thriving community, is one of the most respected philanthropic organizations in the region. GNOF turned to Gambel Communications to raise awareness for GiveNOLA Day, held annually in May, through media and community relations.

A local philanthropic movement was ignited with the 2014 launch of GiveNOLA Day, culminating in over 19,600 gifts and raising nearly $2,300,000 for 309 regional non-profit organizations, far surpassing GNOF’s goals, and earning Gambel Communications the Public Relations Society of America’s Silver Anvil award.

Gambel Communications continues to work closely with GNOF, and recently announced the third annual GiveNOLA Day to be held on May 3, 2016.
