Owner Val Bee has spent 15 years working with nonprofit organizations, foundations and social service agencies, industry leaders and celebrities, hospitals and universities, donors and community partners, restaurants, venues, and more, on fundraising, marketing, strategic planning, program and project management, and festival and event planning & production. And what keeps her engaged are people like you.
Val is absolutely bananas about helping people. She’s helped manage $3.5 million dollar campaigns and startups just getting off the ground. She’s motivated by her desire to support those who pour their blood, sweat & tears into serving others. Val is an expert in her field because she’s learned first-hand how Boston’s best organizations and businesses operate. She has dedicated herself, not to being the best in one company, but the best in her field. She knows intricately the ins and outs of this industry, and as a result, brings a unique perspective to the table.
“It’s all about the triple-bottom line: passion, purpose, and profit.”
- Val Bee, Owner
What Val is most passionate about, is working with businesses and brands that are equally passionate about what they do and more importantly, why they do it. People want to feel deeply connected to the businesses and brands they support, which is why L.I.R. operates from a place of understanding that a brand isn’t just about fonts and colors, it’s about integrity. This is why we’re selective about who we partner with, hire, and represent.
Val knows what it takes to have an idea, build that idea into a concept, connect that concept to a community, and turn that connection into profit. In 2017, when Democracy Brewing decided to launch in Downtown Boston, they hired Val to make sure they had a strong presence in the community and was connected where it counts. In 2016, Val was hired to support the largest mobile industry community in Boston to produce a speaker series. In 2015, Val threw the first fundraiser for the then emerging nonprofit Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism (BINJ) which featured Boston’s hottest marketing and PR firms. Val hopes that thru L.I.R. she’s able to continue doing what she loves most - connecting communities, causes, and creatives.
