Model capacity for giving

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.

Engage donors effectively

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 stronger, 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.”

    “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

Frequently Asked Questions

How can mobile analytics be used by nonprofit organizations to support sponsorship opportunities? keyboard_arrow_down

Mobile analytics can enhance what you know about who attends events, festivals, charity races, gallery openings etc. It can be instrumental in determining if sponsorship initiatives are aligned with your target market. Mobility data is an anonymized, permission-based data service, which uses data collected from location-enabled devices that were observed within a geofenced area defined by latitude and longitude. Our mobility data is collected only if consent or permission is provided by the individual. See Mobile Analytics

How can a more targeted approach to fundraising help save our organization money? keyboard_arrow_down

Fundraising is the lifeblood of nonprofit organizations. However using tactics like bulk mailings can be costly and targeting prospective donors with messages that aren’t relevant to them is ineffective. By using analytics tools such as predictive modeling, you can predict with a high degree of accuracy who is mostly likely to give. Our data can help you define the right audience, understand what is important to them, create targeted messaging and then reach that audience through their preferred channels. Better the returns on your marketing spend by personalizing your donor’s experience. See consumer insights.
