Releasing Generosity

Somewhere a heart is crying…

An older man who just lost his job…
A single mom who is struggling to feed her children…
A lonely child who dreams of having a mom and dad…
A struggling family facing the challenge of poverty…

BDI was founded in response to these cries. The heartbeat of our organization focuses on nonprofit fundraising that releases generosity to help a hurting world. But we don’t accomplish this alone. Our calling drives us to partner with cause and faith-driven organizations that reach out to the most vulnerable people in your community and around the world. The result: More lives changed.

Connecting those who
have with those who need.

Fundraising for nonprofits is about more than raising money… It’s about connecting generous hearts with your community’s greatest needs. We pursue a world in which abundant generosity solves our greatest challenges, empowers our greatest impact, and fulfills our greatest dreams.

Your cause matters to us like it’s our own. As we partner together, we promise to let these principles guide us.

Core Principle #1: Abundance, Not Scarcity

BDI believes that generosity exists in every heart, just waiting to be released. We approach fundraising for nonprofits from a perspective of abundant resources: There are plenty of generous people across the globe who want to help others.

Core Principle #2: Opportunity Meets Capacity – for Great Impact

As a fundraising marketing agency, BDI believes in the tremendous impact that occurs when an authentic case for support is met with people’s desire to be part of the redemptive upside of humanity. To make these connections, we actively engage donors where they live and interact, communicate clearly with value-driven language, and make the journey engaging, fun and rewarding.

Core Principle #3: Missionally Aligned

BDI believes in working alongside cause- and faith-driven organizations who are aligned with our values, committed to their work and share our vision to help heal a hurting world.

Core Principle #4: Stronger Together

BDI believes that we’re both stronger and more effective by serving together as partners in ministry. Time after time, we’ve seen exponential results because of the collaboration and leveraging of the talents among our client partners.

Core Principle #5: Responsible Stewardship

BDI believes that relationships are our greatest priority – with our client partners and within our staff team. We value each team member’s God-given gifts and talents, and celebrate how our individual expertise complements one another and contributes to a strong team. These working relationships internally help us serve better externally as a fundraising agency.

As we labor together, it’s the relationships formed that supercharges our teams – the journey side-by-side, rather than the destination alone.

A heart for growth

The most help for those with the least.

Since BDI began, we’ve helped fundraise over 1 billion dollars for nonprofit organizations serving in the US, Canada and internationally. We can’t even begin to calculate the lives that have been transformed!

Helping you reach and exceed your organization’s goals is our commitment and passion. Through innovative strategies, the support of seasoned specialists and our innovative, omni-channel fundraising programs, we empower you to achieve greater results for greater impact.
