A partnership with DRG means you'll have a team of innovators ready to help you see and do things differently to elevate the donor experience. Check out how we've partnered with Whitworth University to help transform their donor relations program. 


The Donor Relations Group (DRG) helped our department at Northwestern immensely this year, especially with our endowed fund reporting process. Two DRG staff quickly learned a web platform, our writing style, and our formatting requirements and were able to produce engaging, top-quality reports within a demanding timeframe. DRG also provided coverage for simultaneous parental leaves, jumping in quickly to handle a variety of tasks. They posed great questions and asked for clarification as needed. Our DRG partners have proven to be nimble and steadfast collaborators, and we highly recommend them."
