WHAT WE DO
Our three main goals
ADRFCO is the national association for direct-response fundraising professionals.
On the theory that effective self-regulation helps prevent unnecessary government regulation, the Association of Direct Response Fundraising Counsel (ADRFCO) was founded in 1986 to protect the legitimate interests of direct-response fundraising consultants by aiming to achieve three main goals:
- To create and enforce the industry’s first set of comprehensive ethical standards,
- To represent its members’ interests before state and federal government, and
- To educate nonprofit organizations and the general public about the use of direct-response fundraising.
