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 free or 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.
