From predictive modeling to donor segmentation and volunteer profiling, we help nonprofit organizations and charities improve operations by developing a deep understanding of their members and donor base.
Drive acquisition, engage prospects and retain your donor base. Using segmentation, demographics and behavioral data, create personas based on what your donors value, how they behave and what their interests are. Track growth and retention of event participants and volunteers. Identify new ways to engage communities based on cultural, ethnic or linguistic origins.
Use predictive analytics along with financial, lifestyle and geographic databases to identify potential prospects, profile their net worth and estimate their capacity for giving by neighborhood. Whether asking for a major gift, year-end or annual gift, or planned gift, improve your return on fundraising efforts by finding and cultivating the optimal donor base.
Improve the effectiveness and engagement of your fundraising campaigns. Understand your donors’ media consumption habits, preferred marketing channels - such as direct mail, social media, print or mobile - and trusted media sources. Create more effective campaigns based on messaging that resonates with the values and beliefs of your audience.
“Environics Analytics gave us a unique lens to understand our donors and determine the best way to invest our fundraising dollars. It’s one thing to buy an ad that asks for money; it’s another to have a person tell your story in a way that touches the heart of your audience. Our donors are as diverse as the colours of the rainbow. But without this information in where to start, we couldn’t have been successful.”See the Case Study keyboard_arrow_right
“Some of our findings blew away the fundraisers. We showed that we could accurately identify the major giving potential of nine out of 10 individuals who had already given us a major gift based solely on where they live and data recorded within our CRM system.”See the Case Study keyboard_arrow_right
