Nonprofits and agencies supporting nonprofits need different types of support at any point in time.
This could depend on where they are currently in their journey of evolution and where they envision themselves in the future. The collaboration they seek could range from getting help with process-related changes to match/improve best practices to thought leadership, and everything in between.

Why collaborate with us?

You would have the option to choose from a myriad of agencies offering services similar to ours. Here are some key facts why collaboration, especially with Donor Detectives, is important.

Donor Detectives is the extension of the Alpha Dog team for designing and executing donor acquisition campaigns across 70 of our clients. It’s amazing working with them because they “get” acquisition and they “get” how it fits into the overall strategy for our clients.

Randy Brewer

President/CEO, Brewer Direct

I’ve known and worked with Madlen and Keghan for several years, so when they branched out on their own, it only seemed right to engage them again. Donor Detectives may be relatively new, but the principals have many years of experience in media for nonprofits. We’ve utilized their list brokerage, print and insert media buying, as well as integrated digital marketing for numerous campaigns. They offer extensive research, solid recommendations, accurate execution, and thorough post-campaign analysis.

VP/Operations, Brewer Direct

Donor Detectives has helped Brewer Direct successfully identify and execute new verticals in our clients’ digital marketing strategy. They understand campaign integration and implementation, and Madlen and Keghan are always eager to help and make themselves available for regular meetings to discuss updates and strategies.
