Getting Started


One size, one approach doesn’t fit all.


We sit down and get to know you and your ideas on direct response marketing for your non-profit or association. Your needs, your strengths, your problems, your priorities, your vision. We won’t blah, blah, blah you or force cookie cutter solutions on you. We’ll listen first, think, and then give you our best recommendations.  An informed, collaborative client is our best client – the ones that get the best results.


Our award-winning creative skills, in-depth analysis, industry expertise, and passion combine to deliver big results for organizations like yours.  We’ll help you attract and renew supporters and members to your important cause through:


  • Goals-focused strategies, unique to each client, but grounded in experience and a proven track-record;
  • Story-focused creative content that engages the heart and head and motivates supporters to take action;
  • Cross-media campaigns built and executed to maximize results.

Tell us where you want to go with your fundraising

and we’ll help you get there

  • What set their direct response agency apart for us was the creative. They took the time to know our mission, and had great ideas on how to increase giving with our consistent supporters as well as how to approach our lapsed file. They quickly became a shop we could rely on for ideas that might not occur to our internal team. They became more than a good vendor ... they became great partners in our mission to help homeless kids.

  • The team at New River Communications are not only easy to work with, but they met every deadline and offered sound suggestions that added quality to our donor acquisition pieces. Because of this, we saw our return rates double over the previous year.

  • I'm the communications manager with an organization outside of Washington DC, and we've used New River for years to send out our direct mail appeals. They work hard to get every detail just right, and the staff is always reachable over e-mail. It has been a pleasure working with them all of these years
