About Us

Unifyer was created by Pursuant, a full service fundraising agency. Pursuant was started in 2001 with the vision of assisting non-profits with communication and fundraising in the online channel. By 2008 Pursuant had grown to serve over 200 clients in several non-profit sectors. In early 2009 Pursuant acquired the operations of Viscern, which added RSI and Ketchum, to the Pursuant family. The combined companies now offer a full set of development services and consulting to the entire non-profit market. Unifyer is the latest innovation from Pursuant. Unifyer was created to help organizations better communicate and build stronger affinity. The need to communicate is essential for the success of any organization and the Unifyer platform provides the opportunity to communicate more often and more efficiently while providing the tools for collaboration and networking among your members.
