a few reasons you'll want to choose us.

We create, manage and execute data driven campaigns across various direct response channels, with a particular focus on digital, direct mail, and mobile.

always evolving.

We’re focused on helping you achieve your financial outcomes.

We’re constantly looking to learn from results and apply those learning to your program. If it can’t be measured, then we’re not the right agency for you.


We’re flexible, and we don’t have a one size fits all model that only works for organisations with big budgets.


We understand and recognise the unique nuances in how different supporters behave. As such we develop authentic supporter communications that vary by channel, helping increase net income by keeping more supporters on file.


We bring your donors closer to the cause. From morning teas to tours, we specialise in taking individual giving programs to the next level by having donors experience the organisation in a deeper way.

Our team.

Jonathon Grapsas

Founder & Director

Jono set up flat earth direct in 2011 to help small and medium-sized charities ensure their results match their ambitions. All these years later, and he reckons the fed team have done this by offering a more flexible way of working, which means that smaller organisations aren’t excluded from the sector’s learnings and insights just for being small.

Jono’s passion is working in agencies and helping charities grow their individual giving programs via direct response fundraising. He’s been lucky enough to do this all around the world, starting in the U.K., across the pond in Canada and now back in his native Australia.

Jono considers it a huge privilege to be working with and for an incredible group of fundraisers.
