Committed to Partnership
We are passionate about what our clients do and seek authentic personal connections with each. For us, it’s all about mission and service, not a “flash and dash” sales pitch. We will never sell a bill of goods and then hardly show up when the real work starts. When we engage you as a client, we commit to being there every step of the way, shoulder to shoulder with you until the job is done. We do what we say we’re going to do, and usually even more.Partner With Us
Fueled by Faith
Our faith is what fuels our passion to do what we do. Even though we do not exclusively serve faith-based organizations, each member of our team possesses a sense of Christian calling to service. Much of how we approach our work is founded on Biblical principles of stewardship. And since we take our faith seriously, you can count on us to serve with integrity and be held accountable for everything we promise.LET’S START A CONVERSATION
You are Unique
Your organization and situation are unique. So you need real solutions, not a cookie-cutter program. We are committed to working with you to design individualized services that fit your own set of organizational needs, circumstances, and budget.Tell Us Your needs
Each member of our team has a proven track record of achieving real success in what clients hire us to help them do. Because at the end of the day, it’s not about being the smartest person in the room – it’s about knowing how to get things done. At the same time, while we take our work seriously, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. We love what we do and gain joy from doing it.Meet Our Team
We are committed to achieving measurable results with each of our clients. You are making a big investment, and you need to see a real return. We understand that. For most nonprofits, money is always in short supply. But when dealing with complex situations, real change isn’t easy, and it doesn’t come cheap, especially when bringing a depth and breadth of experience to bear, as we do. Fortunately, most of our clients have plenty of latent opportunity bottled up just waiting to be released, and will usually see a net positive return on investment within the first year of service.Contact us

"Helping an organization understand where to start is key. Christian schools need to reach out to someone like you to help them do that. We are where we are now, 6 years later, from working with DickersonBakker. You helped us know where to start."
President, Foundation Academy
"When you find a company you can work with that understands your values, the structure of the organization itself, and you can use them for all three phases, it's definitely a win."
Captain Bryan DeMichael
Commanding Officer, Lancaster, Ohio Corps
“When you have a gap you can’t necessarily fill from within, you look elsewhere. It’s that trusted advisor we have found with DickersonBakker, critically in the space of major gift fundraising and capital campaign planning.”
Chief Development Officer, Moody Bible Institute
In the thirty-six years we’ve been in business, we’ve served well over a thousand clients – each one different from every other we worked with before.
There are similarities, for sure, but each is a diverse group of people, with their own unique mix of personalities, working from their own place, balancing their own challenges and opportunities, pursuing their own vision in their own singular way.
We’ve learned that before we can help you accomplish your goals, we need to gain a firm understanding of who you are, how you operate, where you want to go, and the unique opportunities and challenges you face.
We then partner with you to implement the plan and deliver real, tangible outcomes. Every dollar invested in our services is a dollar that can’t be spent directly on your mission. We understand that, and are committed to helping you achieve a net positive return on investment through our partnership with you.
