What we’re all about
In 1976, Carl Bloom saw an opportunity. He envisioned a full-service agency that would help nonprofit organizations elevate their missions, define their brand and raise funds for important causes.
Carl and his team would go on to generate millions of dollars for nonprofits around the world. Initially mastering the fine art of direct mail, Carl Bloom Associates went on to develop marketing programs for both nonprofit and for-profit organizations, including public media companies, libraries, museums and nearly 100 other types of organizations. Over the decades, CBA evolved to become experts in integrated marketing by combining offline mail and digital channels.
Today, CBA offers comprehensive, tailored direct marketing strategies that allow companies and nonprofits to promote their missions and reach their goals. We pride ourselves on our expertise in integrating tried-and-true, traditional methods that have stood the test of time with newer approaches that keep our clients relevant and successful. At CBA, we work hard to understand what motivates your donors and consumers and then develop and execute strategies that deliver.
CBA has been in the direct response space since 1976 and together, we have more than 250 years of combined experience in marketing.
Our team is well-versed in direct mail and cutting-edge digital techniques and we ensure that all our clients’ fundraising channels work in unison for maximum impact.
