We Think Our Philosophy is Uniquely Compelling.
Come Hear for Yourself.

Over the past 20 years, we have built a reputation for being an industry thought leader, sharing our unique perspectives on fundraising from the inside out at conferences and symposia across the country.

In fact giving back to our industry is just a part of the commitment to service that helps define our legacy. Being an active part of the fundraising community also helps us keep abreast of industry trends and best practices.

Learn more about our approach by hearing us at an upcoming conference, or check out our recent presentations and publications.

in the spotlight

The DMAW is celebrating 60 years!

The Direct Marketing Association of Washington is the largest regional direct marketing association in the US. The majority of members are folks in the Washington metro, Baltimore, and Central Virginia areas whose field of interest is direct marketing and who gather together for learning, sharing, networking, and, of course, making good friends and having fun.

Most of our staff are members of DMAW and often volunteer to help the DMAW in their mission to promote the exchange of information, encourage and support the highest ethical business standards, and promote the use and understanding of direct marketing.
