We provide assistance in three key areas - fund development, talent management, and strategy consulting - helping each client gain the experience and resources necessary to fuel their growth, build sustainability, and achieve a greater impact.

More than three decades of service

Founded in 1985, Dickerson, Bakker & Associates has an unbroken track record of providing professional consulting services to nonprofit clients for more than thirty years.

Hundreds of millions of dollars raised

We have helped hundreds of organizations raise hundreds of millions of dollars through capital campaigns and major gift development programs.

Over a thousand clients served

We work with a wide variety of nonprofits, faith-based and secular, small to large, across the spectrum from those seeking to simply meet individual needs in their local communities to those hoping to make a global impact for eternity.

Local impact… with a global reach

With our corporate office in North Carolina and consulting team offices across the country, we partner with groups throughout the United States as well as in Canada and overseas, including the United Kingdom, European Union, Scandinavia, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Middle East.

Learn about the values that characterize our company

Faith-based

Our faith is what inflames our passion to do what we do. Even though we do not exclusively serve faith-based organizations, each member of our team possesses a strong sense of Christian calling to ministry service. Much of how we approach our work is founded on Biblical principles of stewardship.

And since we take our faith seriously, you can count on us to serve with integrity and be held accountable for everything we promise.

True Partnership

We are passionate about what our clients do and seek authentic personal connections with each. For us, it’s all about mission and service, not a “flash and dash” sales pitch. We will never sell a bill of goods and then hardly show up when the real work starts.

When we engage you as a client, we commit to being there every step of the way, shoulder to shoulder with you until the job is done. We do what we say we’re going to do, and usually even more.

Individualized Service

Your organization and situation are unique. So you need real solutions, not a cookie-cutter program in a three-ring binder.

We are committed to working with you to design individualized services that fit your own set of organizational needs, circumstances, and budget.

Professional Expertise

We have worked hard to build a team of professionals who are recognized as experts in their fields. Typically having ten or more years of experience, each team member has a proven track record of achieving real success.

Because at the end of the day it’s not about being the smartest person in the room, it’s about knowing how to get things done.

Real Outcomes

We are committed to achieving real measurable results with each of our clients. You are making a big investment, and you need to see a real return. We understand that.

For most nonprofits, money is always in short supply. But when dealing with complex situations, real change isn’t easy, and it doesn’t come cheap, especially when bringing a depth and breadth of experience to bear, as we do.

Fortunately, most of our clients have plenty of latent opportunity bottled up just waiting to be released, and will usually see a net positive return on investment within the first year of service.

“I appreciate Dickerson, Bakker & Associates' focus on results and the fact that they have always met and exceeded my expectations in our work together.”
Dustin Rubeck, President, Dallas Christian College
