Nonprofits


Nurturing and growing missions like yours for 30+ years.

Our Roots


A lot has changed since we began marketing for nonprofit organizations in 1981. Nonprofit marketing used to be about engaging prospective donors at the top of the funnel and pushing them along with targeted messages. The funnel is gone, folks. It has exploded into a dynamic array of different devices and communication streams. Donors can, and do, bounce in and out of their journey at various points. And that requires a different, more adaptable approach to marketing for nonprofits. We have to meet the donor where they are on their journey, with the right message, served at the right time, in the right channel and even on the right screen.

And as marketers, we’ve evolved, too. At BKV, we’ve learned how to turn data into insights, insights into action. Whether your efforts call for digital channels like social media, websites, mobile and eCRM, or workhorse traditional channels like DRTV and direct mail, BKV knows how to make each one work – bringing in donations and building your brand. We’re right-place-right-time kind of people. Because that’s what it means to be evolved. Like what you hear?

Let’s Get Started

Our Philosophy


We work hard to make your brand work harder. We carefully craft campaigns that support the complexities of our clients’ brands while generating extraordinary results.

We’ve built our success on a deep understanding of the discipline of direct marketing, and we’re constantly fighting for a better, stronger ROI. Because we think goals should be achieved and then eclipsed – all while building a more meaningful, more dynamic, hard-working brand that accurately reflects the values of your mission.

We not only work with nonprofits, we also support the important work they do. From office fundraising events, to social advocacy and volunteering, our commitment to our community is a fundamental part of BKV’s culture and character. Sure, the agency makes donations. But it’s the passion of our staff that really energizes and adds meaning to our on-the-ground efforts. Because, the way we see it? It’s not enough just to talk the talk.
