About BDI

Your vision =
our passion

At BDI, we pour into you and your program like it’s our own. We engage. This is mission critical work and our life’s calling too! Your work is precious to us, and we value it like our own!

Fundraising for nonprofits means we’re there for the small things. The deep-dive challenges. The aim-high possibilities. The fun encounters. The joys celebrated. And the heartaches encountered. We’re there with you.

Your team just got
a whole lot bigger.

Think of us as additional heads, hands and hearts on your org chart. Actually, we’re a diversified team of industry-tested, results-obsessed, nonprofits fundraising and marketing enthusiasts… who also love to have coffee and talk about your pets, your family and your big ideas.

You’re not hiring a fundraising agency. You’re expanding your nonprofit team with breadth and depth that will unlock new levels of opportunity.

Randy Brewer

BDI founding story: From deep roots abundant fruit grows.

When Randy Brewer started Brewer Direct in 2004, all he had was a little fold-up table and a big idea: The more you give away, the more you grow. He found clients who believed and embraced this same life-affirming principle. This expansive spirit of generosity was at the heart of Randy, and that same spirit has permeated the entire company ever since.

From those humble beginnings, Brewer Direct (now simply BDI), has indeed grown into a comprehensive, integrated, omni-channel fundraising agency, bringing 360-degree marketing and development solutions to our cause- and faith-driven client partners across the country.

More fuel for more impact.
