Rich Aukland, CEO of Allegiance Group, and Trent Ricker, CEO and President of The Pursuant Group, are excited to announce the merger of their respective companies. This union brings together two industry-leading organizations with a shared vision to provide comprehensive and scalable services for nonprofits. By combining their expertise in technology, analytics, marketing and fundraising strategy, they aim to create a formidable alliance that will better serve the needs of nonprofit organizations of all sizes.
The merger of Allegiance Group and The Pursuant Group signifies an influential step forward in the nonprofit sector. Allegiance Group and The Pursuant Group serve complementary market segments, providing an opportunity for collaboration and expansion by combining world-class analytics, digital services, and a deep team with a wide range of experiences, offering unparalleled service in the industry.
Allegiance Group has more than 40 years of experience partnering with nonprofits and associations on fundraising, marketing, and technology solutions that inspire action and create a lasting impact. The Pursuant Group, a full-service marketing and fundraising agency with over 20 years of serving the industry, began with a focus on technology and digital services for nonprofits and evolved into a full-service fundraising firm driven by analytics and insights.

The merger also brings together a consolidation of technologies, including the proprietary GivingDNA wealth screening and data analytics platform, to help nonprofits better understand donor behavior and identify potential larger gifts and sustaining donors.
“The goal of Allegiance Group is to meet every individual client where they are at, and we want to provide our clients with services that are broad and deep enough to be truly impactful in supporting their mission,” said Rich Aukland. “Pursuant and Allegiance Group together allow us to accomplish that goal without compromise.”

Our strengths and experience complement one another in a way that uniquely creates a truly full-service agency and software company that can serve organizations of all sizes and provide expertise in all key marketing, fundraising, analytics, digital, and technology services. I’m thrilled to join forces and help our clients make an even greater impact in the world.”
