Agents of Good

Agents of Good is a direct response and donor communications collective. One of our early lessons was that money follows value. We are students of relationship fundraising, nerdy about direct response and direct marketing, obsessive about the 1,000 things you must do to create a growing fundraising program, and – most importantly – we are emotional and vulnerable in our pursuit of #donorlove.

Ask Direct’s job is to inspire people to take action – as many people as possible. In ways that make sense to them. For the causes they believe in. For a better world.

SOFII partner since 2018
