Our team is passionate about transforming the lives of the homeless and disadvantaged through our work with Rescue Missions and other local community agencies.

Serving Rescue Missions Since 1985

We understand that raising money for Rescue Missions and other organizations serving the homeless and disadvantaged requires a unique approach. You don’t raise money for “street-level” ministry like you would for a college, university, hospital, museum, or any other type of non-profit.

You serve an important community function, and are a vital outreach to those in your community who are most at need. You may also have a robust donor list from years of direct mail fundraising, supporting relationships with local churches, and often have opportunities for broad community support from local businesses, corporations, and foundations. But you do not have wealthy alumni, well-heeled members, or even necessarily well-connected Board members and volunteers. And chances are, your team is also under-resourced and short-staffed, trying to make a dime do the work of a dollar.

We understand the unique challenges you face, and can help you take your fundraising to the next level. Our work with Rescue Ministries and other ministries serving the homeless and disadvantaged has traditionally been focused on providing Capital Campaign Consulting Services, but more and more we are also providing assistance with Major Gift Solutions, Grant Development Services, and Executive Search.

"I just want to thank DickersonBakker for giving us 33% growth in our donor income. If any Rescue Mission is worried about the cost of services, I am here to tell you to go ahead and pick up the phone and call them. We’ve had a HUGE return on investment on our work with DickersonBakker. They are amazing!"
