  • The ‘top brand’ among all associations and advocacy groups working on behalf of nonprofits that utilize data and marketing to communicate with donors, members, and the public.
  • One of the largest member segments of the DMA with over 400 members.
  • Guided by a volunteer Advisory Council of leading members from both the nonprofit and supplier community.
