Why Factary’s different

Factary’s difference lies in our approach. We undertake a direct, hands-on approach to all the work we undertake, whether a database screening, prospect briefing or an in-depth profile. This is an approach we’ve maintained during our twenty five years of providing research to the non-profit sector in the UK, Europe and elsewhere.
