Ideas that keep giving.

Ideas that motivate. Ideas that empower. Ideas that inspire.

Marlin has a track record of building breakthrough fundraising because we enjoy offering ideas to solve problems or to seize opportunities.
We are an independent, privately-owned business, and we champion the importance of messaging in relationship fundraising.

We are mothers, fathers, sons and daughters. We're a team of strategists, creatives, project managers, developers and digital experts with mainstream agency and in-house charity experience.
We know what it takes to create a global brand, and we know how it feels to manage a fundraising campaign from the inside.

Like you, we're here to
help change the world.

Why is Marlin different?

Supporter relationships offer charities the resources they need to create social change. But we recognise that donors need relationships too.
For people to feel that they live a fulfilled life, they must believe they are good at sharing their love for others. And so we ask ourselves:
“How can we help charities stretch a donor’s imagination of just how competent they can be through raising or donating money?”

Our strategists work collaboratively to uncover the attractive qualities that they can be shaped into compelling offers to meet donor needs.
Our creatives develop messaging frames at brand, program or campaign levels to attract attention, develop loyalty, and show how the donor’s identity can be enhanced if they respond.
Our digital technicians ensure that behavioural obstacles such as inconvenience, friction and procrastination are diminished or removed.

We provide engaging experiences to your fundraising team, and your supporters. Because we want sustained support for social change.
We delight CEOs, beneficiaries, and finance teams with our effective and considered storytelling. Because we embrace distinctiveness and dignity, as well as performance.
