Product Vision:

One-stop supporter qualification platform that prioritizes who you should reach out to fits based on recency, capacity to give, demographics, and why they care about the non profits’ mission.

 

Customer Vision:

As a fundraiser, imagine never having to build your own portfolio again. No more cold calling supporters who don’t want to talk to you. No more spending countless hours trying to figure out who cares about your mission and has the capacity to give a major gift. No more spending money on spray and pray marketing efforts that don’t result in major and legacy donations/commitments. Imagine logging into one system that greets you each morning with your top 5 prospects that you should call, when you should call, and what you should say.
