Improve the outcomes of your enrollment, alumni relations and fundraising campaigns. Whether you are a school, college, or university, we provide recruitment and advancement departments with a deeper understanding of your community and identify what resonates with your students, alumni and donors.
Understand your student population - who they are, where they live and what’s important to them – to identify new markets that are most likely to respond to your value proposition. Create personas to build more effective campaign messaging and build strategies to improve marketing ROI.
Whether asking for a major, planned, or monthly gift, improve your return on fundraising efforts by understanding your alumni and gift-givers, their net worth and capacity for giving. Create effective campaigns that resonate with their values and execute in their preferred media channels.
Identify the key drivers of school success through location-based analytics. Estimate the opportunity and market size, understand school catchment areas, household composition, how far families are willing to travel and the effect of competition on site location.
“By looking at our donors through the lens of PRIZM and SocialValues, we were able to see the types of donors who share our values and are most likely to be responsive to our campaigns, as well as where to find them.”
“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
By combining your first-party school location and student household data with our consumer and market data, you can generate deeper student insights—who they are, where they live, their values and purchase behaviour. Using these insights, you can refine your marketing campaigns with relevant messaging and build digital and traditional media plans based on your target’s media consumption habits and preferred channels.
Finding donors to financially support a school’s overall mission and academic programs is always a difficult task. Enhance your fundraising programs by segmenting constituents using PRIZM® Premier to gain insight into alumni and past donors, including their demographics, lifestyle and estimated giving capacity. Turn these insights into action by personifying targeted segments, and developing communications that speak to what matters to them most and how their values influence their decisions.
We can help you identify the key drivers, both positive and negative, that are statistically correlated with performance. By combining school location variables, including student address data, competition, PRIZM profiles, location demographics, and more, we can help you see the factors that have the greatest impact on the success of your school. Our reports will clearly show you how far students are willing to travel to your school, the effect of competition and the relative demand in your catchment area and more.
