At RBR we help not-for-profit organizations to secure the resources they need to deliver on their mission. We've been doing this for more than 20 years and we're good at it; really good. In fact, we're recognized as one of the country's leaders in the field. That's a reputation we're proud to have earned and one that we're committed to upholding.
RBR Development Associates Ltd. is wholly owned and operated by Canadians. In both large urban centres and smaller rural communities, we have a track record for raising results. This isn't just about securing the resources you need; it's also about working closely with your team so we can leave you with greater self-sufficiency.
Results also come in the form of a healthy client/counsel relationship. At RBR, we value the relationships we've developed along the way -- ones that are built on mutual understanding, trust and respect. We incorporate these values every step of the way, relying on our integrity as much as our skills and experience to do the best job possible for our clients. It's one of the reasons we enjoy such a strong rate of referral.
