Our Story

Pursuant was founded with a single goal: to help nonprofits reach more donors and raise more money.

Today, we do that by liberating nonprofit leaders through actionable data, marketing automation, and productivity tools that empower them to reach more donors and raise more dollars.

Using our intelligent fundraising process, we work with nonprofits to discover solutions for their most challenging obstacles, develop a customized framework to achieve their unique goals, implement campaigns that leverage our comprehensive services, and review results to make an even greater impact in the future.

Your mission is important, but the challenges have never been greater. We want to help you work smarter, not harder.
