Values

What we value brings value to your nonprofit.

Serve First

Accomplishing your vision is our highest virtue. We focus on serving you first so that you can better assist the people you serve.

Customize Not Homogenize

Fundraising should not be an assembly line of sameness. When it comes to fundraising, one size doesn’t fit all.

Hand-In-Hand

We consider our clients partners for life. Together, we join hands to bring life and hope to the world’s neediest people.

The Answer is “Yes”

Why would we say “No,” when you’ve said “Yes, I can help you” to so many? Consider us as an extension of your marketing and development family.

Raising Results

Improving your bottom line is top-of-mind. We will revise and devise until outcomes meet and exceed financial objectives.

Giving Back

Brewer Direct puts our money where our mouth is. We support organizations that are making a difference by donating 10% of our income to charities.
