integrated fundraising for nonprofits

our history

Determined to help nonprofit organizations improve the world, a woman named Sanky Perlowin opened up a direct mail fundraising shop in 1977 and called it Sanky Communications. Nearly four decades later, the original Sanky is no longer with us, but her passion for helping good causes grow – and her name – never left. Today, we're a tight-knit group of 50+ specializing in direct mail, online and integrated fundraising campaigns.

the team

Individually, we're account managers, developers, designers and writers. Together, we create beautiful campaigns that effectively further each client's mission.
