Substance & Sums Communications is a communications strategy firm providing writing and editing services to non-profit organizations, funders and small and mid-sized businesses, with a special focus on communications (substance) that include numbers and analysis (sums). Of course, it is also a remix of the phrase “sum and substance” which is defined as the main idea or theme – an important goal for all types of communications.
