Who We Are

NRC is an award-winning, full-service direct response marketing agency. Since 2000, we’ve worked to combine the best practices of traditional direct mail fundraising with phone, online, social media and other emerging technologies. We work exclusively with non-profit organizations and associations focused on some of the most important causes of our time: feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, alleviating suffering caused by diseases, educating disadvantaged children, and protecting our planet’s precious resources, among others.

Giving Back

Here at New River we believe that protecting our beautiful planet is the responsibility of every air-breathing human. We try to do our part by implementing sustainable business practices, advocating for environmental causes and through The Nature Conservancy’s Plant A Billion program we plant a tree for every direct mail job we produce on our client’s behalf.

The Plant a Billion projects in the United States and around the world are rejuvenating iconic forests in key locations. The Nature Conservancy is making sure each dollar donated can have the most effect on creating healthy forest habitat by using two methods: planting tree seedlings in areas that have been highly degraded, and assisting the natural regeneration of the forest by removing barriers to the forest’s ability to heal itself.
