Brewer Direct
A lot of groups do good work.
But doing good work
isn’t good enough for us.

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.

LEADERSHIP

Randy Brewer

Chairman/CEO

 

Randy Brewer has spent over half his life in marketing, PR and fundraising for nonprofit organizations. Prior to founding Brewer Direct in April 2004, Randy served as a Senior Vice President at Grizzard Communications Group, where he was directly responsible for many of the company’s nonprofit clients.

 

At Brewer Direct, Randy’s leadership has led to multiple millions of dollars generated and hundreds of thousands of new donors acquired to help nonprofit ministries throughout the United States.

 

An ordained minister with degrees in Education and Ministry, and graduate studies in both Theology and Business Management, he has worked for Focus on the Family, World Vision and at a local newspaper group. Randy also serves on the board as Vice Chairman of African Enterprise USA, a 50-year-old evangelistic and relief ministry in Africa and is an active member of International Full Gospel Fellowship, which both provide help to the world’s hurting. Most recently, he launched his own philanthropic venture, Randy W. Brewer Foundation, to further Christ’s love through supporting wellness and education for young people around the world.

 

Randy has authored two inspirational books. In Finding My Voice: A Story of Grace, Hope and Healing, he tells the gripping true story of his battle with a rare throat cancer that threatened his speaking voice entirely, but led him to discover a new Voice calling. In his newest book, Releasing Generosity, Randy explores a key question that Voice challenged him to answer: “What will you do with the love you’ve been given?” His response, expressed in this powerful book, is a compelling “manifesto” on the heart behind giving.
