About iWave

Since 1991, iWave has been developing online prospect research and fundraising tools that empower nonprofit organizations to fundraise with confidence.  We compile the most comprehensive wealth and charitable giving data in the industry and package it in easy to use tools that help development professionals determine WHO to ask, HOW MUCH to ask for, and WHEN to ask. It’s simple, in order for nonprofits to be successful in their fundraising efforts, they need to know and understand their prospects’ capacity and inclination to give. But rather than spending their time and resources searching, “Google-ing”, and jumping from source to source, we bundle the best wealth and philanthropic information in the industry into user-friendly software solutions. Read More.

Suzanne Duncan, MA CFRE. / Senior Manager, Major Gifts, WoodGreen Community Services

I used iWave for the first time and, after a bit of research, submitted a grant application to a foundation for funding consideration. We had never applied to this particular foundation before and were excited to receive notification that we had been awarded $10,000 for a capital project. I probably would not have applied to this particular foundation had I not had the benefit of iWave’s detailed funder profiles. Thanks so much!”
