Grow student and alumni recruitment programs and fundraising initiatives

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.

Optimize recruiting and student enrollment

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.

Improve fundraising and advancement efforts

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.

Enhance your site and location strategy

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.” 

    Dwayne DiPasquale, Director of Advancement | Mackenzie Health Foundation

    “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.”

    “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.”

    Tracey Carmichael, Director of Research and Data Analytics | UBC's Development and Alumni Engagement Department (UBCDAE) See the Case Study
