Affordable Advancement Analytics

We are a nonprofit philanthropy devoted to helping small nonprofits identify prospects who have the highest likelihood of giving.

The Affordable Advancement Analytics (A3) Difference:

We are a nonprofit helping nonprofits!

It can be hard to identify the donor prospects who are likely to donate. But commercial predictive analytics are often expensive and overly complex. We are a nonprofit philanthropy devoted to helping other nonprofits improve fundraising effectiveness.

Our name says it. We are:

Affordable: Our work is an “in kind” gift to your nonprofit for a fee far less than profit-driven vendors.

Advancement: We focus on fundraising to help you streamline your advancement efforts.

Analytics: Our secret is superior advanced predictive analytics that mine a resource you already have; your donor data base.

We can help to: 

– Tidy donor data, cleaning out duplicate entries, names lost to age or distance, and values that are identifiably wrong or inappropriate.

– Improve donor records by identifying useful fields and recommending formats more amenable to analysis.

– Improve your return rate on appeals sent to current and prospective donors.

– Identify the subset of donors for whom the extra attention of a special event or personalized note on the appeal letter is most likely to pay off.

We help smaller nonprofits mine their donor database to identify their most likely donor prospects. We work with a powerful resource; the donor information already in-hand. We help to clean and format that data and then build powerful predictive analytic models.

Organizations We Have Helped

“Paul and Peter synthesized a decade’s worth of information in our donor database to provide streamlined analytic models to identify trends and help Bay Chamber focus and streamline its fundraising efforts. We are grateful for the generosity and expertise of the A3 team.”
– Josie Davis, Advancement Officer, Bay Chamber Concerts & Music School

Palaver Strings

Westfield State University

“A3 worked with me to do some data analysis and pinpoint a subset of our donors who looked like great donors, that we could investigate further and improve our engagement and outreach to that group of donors. We are a small office, and I have no time to do this type of data analysis, so having A3 help us by doing this type of data analysis has been a tremendous help.”
– Ruthie Giles, Associate Director of Advancement Services
