Who are we?

TrueSense Marketing is a full-service direct marketing agency with more than 200 fundraising pros (and growing!) that are committed to building strong donor relationships, enhancing the donor experience, and creating the conditions for greater generosity. Our clients see greater income, with strong donor retention and lower fundraising costs. 

We believe donors are heroes. Their passion and generosity are building a better world. That’s why we live donor-focused, client-inspired fundraising every day.
